He had a great voice.

I didn’t like it and always suspected it was a bit of a put on for radio but I wanted to at least try for one sentence not to speak ill of the dead.

Stripper Annabel Battistella --- aka, "Fanne Foxe" --- died just four days before her 85th birthday.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/local/obituaries/fanne-foxe-dies/2021/02/24/87c04e6e-5e4c-11ea-b014-4fafa866bb81_story.html

Her liaison with Congressman Wilbur Mills (Democrat - Arkansas) in 1974 later brought down his career in 1976. At the time, he was the Chair of the House Ways and Means Committee.

Interesting. I knew about the shooting. Big news here at the time. Didn't know the CNN story.

Quote:
Jordan was nearly killed by a racist’s bullet outside the Marriott in Fort Wayne in May 1980. He was left seriously hurt. As he was recovering, then-President Jimmy Carter visited Jordan. It was the first story ever broadcast on CNN.
