God bless Pope Benedict for retiring because he realized he could no longer physically do the job that needed to be done.

Some of our U.S. senators should learn a lesson. Robert Byrd, Strom Thurmond, Ted Kennedy and many more should have voluntarily retired.

This doesn’t mean they have to quit living and contributing. It just means that they allow someone younger, healthier and more able to do the job. We need term limits — three terms should be the limit.
