Senator Inouye is engaged at age 83...
Call me crazy, but I found this interesting for some odd reason...
HONOLULU (Associated Press) -- Sen. Daniel Inouye, the 83-year-old who ranks No. 3 in seniority in the chamber, is getting married.
The Hawaii Democrat said Tuesday that he is engaged to Irene Hirano, the president and chief executive officer of the Japanese American National Museum in Los Angeles. They plan to marry May 24 in Los Angeles, Inouye said in a news release.
"Irene is an extraordinary woman of grace, intelligence and accomplishment," Inouye said. "She is a rare gem in our society. Without question, I am a very fortunate and lucky man."
Hirano is a graduate of the University of Southern California, where she received her bachelor's and master's degrees in public administration. She serves on the board of trustees of the Ford Foundation.
The release from Inouye's office did not give Hirano's age, and museum officials could not be reached by telephone after hours.
Margaret Awamura Inouye, Inouye's wife of nearly 60 years, died in March 2006 of complications from colon cancer at age 81.

An 83 year old guy engaged to be married less than 2 years after his wife of 60 freakin' years dies. That has to go against every scientific study ever conducted.
