Ted Stevens Killed in Plane Crash

Ted Stevens, former U.S. Senator from Alaska, was killed last night when a plane he was flying in went down near an isolated Alaskan fishing lodge. Stevens, who perished along with four other people, was the longest serving Republican Senator in U.S. history. I met him this summer in Washington. In a brief exchange before I interviewed him for a film, he told me about surviving a plane crash in 1978 at the Anchorage International Airport. His wife, Ann, was killed along with four other people in that crash.
