Jim Abdnor, former congressman and senator, dies at 89
Jim Abdnor had a way with words.
Which is odd, since he never made a big, important speech. None of his words are likely to be carved in stone somewhere. He wasn't known for making grand statements that moved the masses.
In addition, he had a slight speech impediment that kept him from making a lot of showy appearances in public.
