Former Alabama Senator, Democrat Howell Heflin, died yesterday at the age of 83.

The thing I best remember about ol’ Howell wasn’t anything to do with legislation. In the 1980′s a tabloid newspaper published a picture taken through a telephoto lens of Ted Kennedy out on a boat in the ocean in flagrante delicto with a female companion.

Later, Heflin commented on the photo. “Looks like Ted’s changed his position on offshore drillin’.”

———-

Speaking of Kennedys, Ted’s former wife and drinkin’ buddy, Joan, was found laying on a sidewalk in Boston, suffering from a concussion and a broken shoulder. Joan has had severe bouts with alcoholism over the years, and lost all of them. You know you’ve got a problem when you’re married to Ted, and he’s the designated driver.
