ANSWER TO THE SECOND WELLSTONE QUESTION: A caller to a talk show on the Minneapolis talk-radio station KSTP is the first I know of to put forth the notion that if Paul Wellstone had kept his promise to not run for re-election he'd still be alive. The host, to his credit, responded that Wellstone was en route to the funeral of the father of a state legislator, and thus would've still been on the plane regardless of whether he was running for the Senate. I would've fingered local radio host Jason Lewis as a top contender to make such a statement, but it wasn't him.
