One of my news junkie pet peeves is how many of us go on a feeding frenzy of "why why why?" when anyone, especially of our own political stripe, leaves Congress voluntarily. Barney Frank was my congressman when I was a student at Brandeis. I love the guy, but I think when the guy is 71 he has a right to retire. (And I certainly wish John McCain, 75, and his older colleagues, SHOULD retire. I said so in 2010.) Congress is NOT a lifetime appointment.

That said, dang, we're gonna miss you, Barney. [video shows one of his finer moments]
