Jesse Helms is Dead.
I've been wondering today where all the hate goes when somebody so hateful dies. Does it decompose along with his corpse? It seems like it would at least linger like an odor, a whiff of sulfur. He wielded it with such implacable force, bruised and battered so many people and institutions over so many years that it's hard to believe such hate wouldn't be a hard, solid thing.
