Cubin Suffers Heat Attack

Washington D-C – Representative Barbara Cubin remains
hospitalized after suffering a heart attack at Dulles International
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.
