June 17, 2004 The Nth degree

Since Anderson is on his way to Baghdad I dug up some old Nth degree transcripts and I'll post them for the next few nights. God's speed Anderson.

Finally tonight, taking the word last to the "Nth Degree." Recently we reported on the death of Alberto Martin. Ms. Martin was supposed to be the last Civil War widow when she died at the age of 97. Now, we learn, there is yet another one still alive, 89-year-old, Mauri Cilia Hopkins family revealed her story after they heard news reports of Ms. Martin's death. Hopkins married confederate veteran William Cantrell back in 1934 when she was 19 years-old and he was 86.So far as we know, Ms. Hopkins is the last, but will the be the first to admit the word last in the case of Confederate widows should be used this way. Boy, those Confederate widows sure do last.
