Former U.S. Sen. Daniel Patrick Moynihan, a powerhouse in Washington
for decades, was in critical condition at a hospital March 17, 2003
with an infection following a burst appendix, an aide said. The
Democrat from New York marked his 76th birthday on Sunday at the
Washington Hospital Center, six days after undergoing surgery for the
burst appendix, the aide said. She said the infection set in on Friday.
