During his 2008 presidential campaign, the Secret Service was tasked with protecting then-GOP nominee John McCain. Though the Secret Service is famously steely and professional at all times, the death of such an important figure in American politics — especially one they'd had the opportunity to work closely with for many months — made them open up a bit and pay tribute to the deceased Senator with his old code name.



The message touched Secret Service followers on Twitter:




Phoenix was an especially apt name for the maverick Senator.


The Secret Service wasn't alone in eulogizing McCain on Twitter. Prominent politicians and government agencies offered their condolences to his family.

...especially by his family.


Rest in peace, Senator McCain. Your legacy lives on.

The upside of accepting this fact should be we're being provided a service and experience we couldn't possibly get on our own. However, there are those products that are overcharged, especially compared to the development costs, that are charged a high price for what feels like no reason outside of making a ridiculous amount of money.
