Your Ex-Lover is Dead

Former Ambassador to the UN Jeanne Kirkpatrick has died at the age of 80. I'll always remember her for two things: The near-riot at Brandeis in 1994 when she was brought in to be commencement speaker, and Al Franken, in one of his books, writing a fake letter complaining that the New York Times had assigned Kirkpatrick to review his book, since she was his former lover. Kirkpatrick's response: "I have no idea what this horrible, horrible man is talking about."

When I saw your title, I thought this might just be a "Bill the Cat" joke.
