President's stepfather dies

Posted By on Wed, Jan 31, 2007 at 6:41 PM

UPDATE TO EARLIER: We just got word that Dick Kelley of Hot Springs, Bill Clinton's stepfather, died today. He'd been released from the hospital after a long illness this week for hospice care. He was 91. Funeral is Saturday, but we have no details yet.

Clinton had a last visit with Kelley Monday. The Washington Post reported earlier today that Sen. Hillary Clinton had cancelled a presidential campaign visit to New Hampshire because of Kelley's "grave" condition. The Clinton family had a close relationship with Kelley, widower of Clinton's mother Virginia. The retired businessman was a familiar sight on all Clinton's visits back home to Arkansas, as well as a frequent White House visitor during the Clinton years. A nice guy with a perpetual smile.

AP has a full obit here.  Bad link fixed. Sorry folks.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
