ANCHORAGE, Alaska -- Dave Dittman, a former aide and longtime family friend of former Sen. Ted Stevens, says Stevens was killed in a plane crash near Dillingham Monday night. Dittman says he received a call overnight Monday that said the former senator was dead. Nine people were on board, including former NASA Chief Sean O'Keefe. Five people were killed in the crash, but other identities were not known, nor are the conditions of the survivors.
Stevens was a posterboy for the ideological war between the right and left in America. However, whether you supported him or not, nobody deserves to die like this.
Senator Stevens - When I finally get to heaven, I hope to see you and Paul Wellstone both there, shaking hands, and maybe having a beer together. God bless.
