Rep. Elijah E Cummings dead at 68

Politics aside. I didn't know he was even ill. It seems he had issues and had a procedure that didn't go well.

RIP Mr. Cummings.

Yeah, I heard some vague mention of a long-term/persistent health issue this morning.

I wasn't aware of it, either, but I never followed Mr. Cummings.

My condolences go out to his friends and family members.

I didn't agree with anything he did politically.

That said, he has people who loved him and will miss him.
RIP Mr. Cummings.

The nation lost a wonderful person, my heart goes out to his family. I assume he has children, 68 is too young for a parent to die.

I lived in Manhattan in the early 90’s and the city was shall we say in a real bad state of affair. Drugs, crimes and murders were running rampant. This was under David dinkins watch and he was too busy watching the US Open tennis at Flushing Meadow then try to quench the race riots in Washington Heights, he couldn’t be bothered. He let them run amok same as what the powers that be did in baltimore.

Low and behold there was an election and dink’s was kicked to the curb, there was a new sheriff in town. Within 6 months the city was a far different one then it was earlier. I was amazed and many thousands of other New Yorkers were also at the transformation of the city. When many residents were scared to go out after dark they were now enjoying the Big Apple and quickly became the safest big city in the country. Thanks to Rudy.

So while Mr Cummings isn’t wholly responsible for the demise of his city he certainly didn’t lift a finger to help it with his race baiting politics and following the mold of how failed cities are run by self serving dem politicians. He should have saved his huge booming voice to make better his district but he didn’t, he used it to grab hold of the camera and attack republicans, often for nothing more the grandstanding. The citizens of Baltimore should hope the one who replaces him cares more about them then attacking the right for frivolous reasons.

Comparing the Mayor of a city effecting change in that city to a Congressman effecting change in a city.

Seems legit.

I grew up in a city where the Congressman from the district had a good bit of influence on the well being of that city. Not as much as a later mayor did, but, still..

I did say he wasn’t wholly responsible but he’s an important cog in the gears of dem govt that runs the city and ruined it. Cummings was born in the city, went to college in the city, served in politics his whole life in the city, still lived in the city till his death and Baltimore was HIS district in the House to take care of. Doesn’t seem legit that you would dismiss this relevant information. A congressman is elected to work for his districts constituency that voted him into office.

Are you also the guy that stands up in a wedding to protest the marriage?

Dude, get a grip and take your hatred over to somewhere that cares. We get it, you don't like the guy. The fact that you continue to kick him, even before his body is in the ground, shows that you have very little respect for others.
