Former Senator Dale Bumpers Dead

As per Michael Hibblen on Facebook:

"Sad to learn longtime Senator and Governor Dale Bumpers has died at 90. He was a legend in Arkansas politics and was among the earliest politicians I interviewed when I became a reporter 23 years ago. He stopped by KUAR almost 14 years ago to talk with Ron Breeding about the release of his autobiography, with a C-SPAN camera crew following, which you can watch below. He was an incredibly intelligent person who I always appreciated talking with because he could localize any international conflict by offering his analysis. He had a deep understanding of world events and was never afraid to speak his mind. I also appreciated the fact that he never minded being called at 6 a.m. for an early morning interview.".

We had news bits featuring Senator Bumpers on the blog in the past.  Thank you Michael....
