HARRISBURG, Pa. —Arlen Specter, a pugnaciousand prominent former moder-ate in the U.S. Senate whodeveloped the single-bullettheory in President John F.Kennedy’s assassinationand played starring roles inSupreme Court confirmationhearings, lost a battle with non-Hodgkin lymphoma at a timewhen Congress is more politi-cally polarized than anyoneserving there — or living inAmerica — can remember.Specter, 82, died Sunday,after spending much of hiscareer in the U.S. Senate warn-ing of the dangers of politicalintolerance.For most of his 30 years asPennsylvania’s longest-serv-ing U.S. senator, Specter wasa Republican, though oftenat odds with the GOP leader-ship. His breaks with his partywere hardly a surprise: He hadbegun his political career asa Democrat and ended it asone, too.In between, he was at theheart of several major Americanpolitical events. He drew thelasting ire of conservativesby helping end the SupremeCourt hopes of former fed-eral appeals Judge Robert H.Bork and the anger of womenover his aggres-sive question-ing of Anita Hill,a law professorwho had accusedSupreme Courtnominee ClarenceThomas of sexualharassment. Heeven mounted ashort-lived run forpresident in 1995on a platform thatwarned his fellowRepublicans of the“intolerant right.”Specter never had his nameon a piece of landmark legisla-tion. But he involved himself deeply in the affairs that mat-tered most to him, whethertrying to advance Middle Eastpeace talks or federal fund-ing for embryonic stem cellresearch. He provided keyvotes for President BarackObama’s signature accom-plishments, the health care andeconomic stimulus bills.Specter died at his home inPhiladelphia from complica-tions of non-Hodgkin lympho-ma, said his son Shanin. Overthe years, Specter had foughttwo previous boutswith Hodgkin lym-phoma, overcomea brain tumor andsurvived cardiacarrest followingbypass surgery.“For over threedecades, I watchedhis political cour-age accomplishgreat feats andwas awed by hisphysical courageto never give up.Arlen never walkedaway from his principles andwas at his best when theywere challenged,” said VicePresident Joe Biden, withwhom Specter often rode thetrain home from Washington,D.C., when Biden also servedin the Senate.Said former PennsylvaniaGov. Ed Rendell, “Arlen want-ed to die in the Senate, and inmany ways he should have.”Intellectual and stubborn,“snarlin’ Arlen” took the leadon a wide spectrum of issuesand was no stranger to con-troversy.He rose to prominence inthe 1960s as an assistant dis-trict attorney in Philadelphiaprosecuting Teamsters officialsfor conspiracy to misuse uniondues and as counsel to theWarren Commission, wherehe developed the “single-bulletfact” in Kennedy’s assassina-tion, as he called it.He came to the Senate inthe Reagan landslide of 1980and, as one of the Senate’ssharpest legal minds, took partin 14 Supreme Court confir-mation hearings.Specter lost his job amidthe very polarization that hehad repeatedly attacked: Hecrossed political party lines tomake the toughest vote he hadever cast in his career when,in 2009, he became one of three Republicans to vote forPresident Obama’s economicstimulus bill.Specter, who grew up inDepression-era Kansas as thechild of Jewish immigrants, justified his vote as the onlyway to keep America fromsliding into another depres-sion.But Republican fury overhis vote appeared immovableand in one of his last majorpolitical acts, Specter star-tled fellow senators in April2009 when he announced hewas joining the Democratsat the urging of good friendsBiden and Rendell, bothDemocrats.Still, many Democratic pri-mary voters had never votedfor Specter, and they weren’tabout to start. Instead, theypicked his primary opponent,then-U.S. Rep. Joe Sestak,despite Specter’s endorsementfrom Obama, Rendell andBiden.Born in Wichita, Kan., onFeb. 12, 1930, Specter spentsummers toiling in his father’s junkyard in Russell, Kan.,where he knew another futuresenator — Bob Dole. The junkyard thrived during WorldWar II, allowing Specter’sfather to send his four childrento college.Specter left Kansas forcollege, graduating from theUniversity of Pennsylvania in1951 and Yale law school in1956. He served in the AirForce from 1951 to 1953.After working on the WarrenCommission, he returned toPhiladelphia and wanted to runfor district attorney in 1965.But he found that he wouldhave to challenge not only hisboss, but the city’s entrenchedDemocratic Party. Specter ranas a Republican and won.

LOS ANGELES — It wassupposed to be a slow but smooth journey to retirement, a paradethrough city streets for a shuttlethat logged millions of miles inspace.But Endeavour’s final missionturned out to be a logistical head-ache that delayed its arrival to itsmuseum resting place by about17 hours.After a 12-mile weave pasttrees and utility poles that includ-ed thousands of adoring onlook-ers, flashing cameras and eventhe filming of a TV commercial,Endeavour arrived at the CaliforniaScience Center Sunday to a greet-ing party of city leaders and otherdignitaries that had expected itmany hours earlier.Endeavour finally inchedtoward a hangar on the grounds of the museum Sunday night.Movers had planned a slowtrip, saying the shuttle that onceorbited at more than 17,000 mphwould move at just 2 mph in itsfinal voyage through Inglewoodand southern Los Angeles.But that estimate turned out tobe generous, with Endeavour oftencreeping along at a barely detect-able pace when it wasn’t at a deadstop due to difficult-to-maneuverobstacles like tree branches andlight posts.Another delay came in the earlymorning hours Sunday when theshuttle’s remote-controlled, 160-wheel carrier began leaking oil.Despite the holdups, theteam charged with transportingthe shuttle felt a “great sense of accomplishment” when it madeit onto the museum grounds, saidJim Hennessy, a spokesman forSarens, the contract mover.“It’s historic and will be agreat memory,” he said. “Not toomany people will be able to matchthat — to say, ‘We moved thespace shuttle through the streets of Inglewood and Los Angeles.”’Transporting Endeavour cross-town was a costly feat with anestimated price tag of $10 million,to be paid for by the science centerand private donations.Late Friday, crews spent hourstransferring the shuttle to a spe-cial, lighter towing dolly for itstrip over Interstate 405. The dollywas pulled across the ManchesterBoulevard bridge by a ToyotaTundra pickup, and the car com-pany filmed the event for a com-mercial after paying for a permit,turning the entire scene into amovie set complete with speciallighting, sound and staging.Saturday started off promising,with Endeavour 90 minutes aheadof schedule. But accumulated hur-dles and hiccups caused it to runhours behind at day’s end.
