In Memoriam: Jesse Helms

In Memoriam
Jesse Alexander Helms, Jr.
October 18, 1921 – July 4, 2008

"I came up between the two world wars during the Depression. All the people around me emphasized working and savings and personal responsibility. They spelled out in one way or another the uniqueness of America. This has largely been lost. Nobody would have thought of turning to the government to solve all our problems." — 1984 interview.
Update: In the July 7, 2008 Washington Post: The Jesse Helms You Should Remember.
