Former Secretary of State Warren Christopher dead at 85

Former Secretary of State Warren Christopher died Friday at 85 from complications of kidney and bladder cancer, his family said.

Christopher was the secretary of state for President Bill Clinton. He served from 1993 to 1997, according to a biography by his law firm.

Before that, he served as the deputy secretary of state for President Jimmy Carter.

In 1981, Carter awarded Christopher with the Medal of Freedom, the highest civilian award.

Christopher received the award for his role in the release of 52 American hostages in Iran.

    GM Jazz7...I'm not familiar with that song. Have you listened to one of Keiko's older CDs "Dream Walk"? That gal plays the piano like no other. Every single note is utterly perfect. Her talent gives me goose-bumps. And yeah, i dozed off. I'm just getting over a nasty cold and have been working long hours. Hay! The birds are chirping this morning!
