I remember their tragic deaths. What a loss.
I met Sen. Wellstone less than a year before his death by pure chance in St. Paul. I challenged him on a few things and he took my email address. For the next 9 months we corresponded about a number of things. While we disagreed on many things he was more than willing to listen to me, a Catholic theologian, and change his mind, even echoing a statement of mine in one of his speeches. He was obviously motivated to do what he thought was right and accepted that I, too, was motivated the same way despite our differences. He was a good man.
