Cubin Suffers Heart Attack

Washington D-C – Representative Barbara Cubin remainshospitalized after suffering a heart attack at Dulles Intenational Airport. Cubin spokesman Joe Milczewski says Cubin was headed back to Wyoming on Friday when she felt chest pains. Blood tests and electronic monitoring showed she had a mild heart attack, and Cubin underwent surgery to place a stent in an artery that was 70 percent blocked. She was expected to be released July 12th, when Congress reconvenes from July Fourth recess. Milczewski says Cubin has been in good spirits, joking that she
was always trying to follow in Dick Cheney's footsteps -- but this
was going too far.
