    Longtime Democrat House Representative for Pennsylvania dead after complications from gallbladder surgery.

    My sympathies to his family and friends, and a final "Thank You" for his military service.

    Although I strongly opposed his political practices, I will not celebrate his death. I do feel that the country is better off without his (highly corrupt) presence in office, but do not relish his passing.

    Why blame the surgeon. The guy was old and under went surgery a risky thing to any one that age and thing can and do go unexpectedly wrong during surgery.

    Why blame the surgeon? Because the surgeon accidentally cut his intestine, resulting in an infection that killed him and he might have been back at work if the doctor hadn't screwed up since a gallbladder removal is a relatively safe procedure.
