Dorothy Dot Helms, widow of late Sen. Jesse Helms, dies at 96; She was born Dorothy Coble in Raleigh in 1919. She and her roommate were the first women to receive journalism degrees from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

Nowhere in either obit does it mention a connection between Dot Coble and the longest serving Senator in North Carolina history, Howard Coble, who died a few days ago in his upper 90s. But somewhere along the line the Coble clan of North Carolina was well-connected and I have to believe these two are related.

Yet another person I've never heard of.

Great news for the list though, could this be a record year?

However, he far outlived his usefulness. By about 86 years.


Well, Senator. Jesse Helms had absolutely no sense of a futuristic way of thinking, but why complain?

A Deathlist candidate doesn't have to be rational to be useful. After 86 years of being usleless he finally made himself useful - somewhere.

Jesse Helms was a good man.
He got things done.
He said what he meant.
He meant what he said.
...Yes, often too far to the right but had to counteract the left-wing loons to ensure this country remained in the center.
People who "rap" against him can kiss off.


Now, it was all going so well, wasn't it?
