RIP Claiborne Pell

Claiborne Pell was a RI senator from 1961 to 1997, and he was largely responsible for the Pell Grant program.  He died yesterday at home with his family.  He was 90 years old.

Quoting Pell:
"The strength of the United States is not the gold at Fort Knox or the weapons of mass destruction that we have, but the sum total of the education and the character of our people."
