Ken Blassingame and the jail matron

[page 31, line 19]

Ken Blassingame, yes. Ken I ran into many — very early in my life when he was a prosecutor trying DWI cases. And we had this case that was going pretty well for the State. I put this old woman on that testified the defendant was not drunk. She had observed him, that he was very fine a few minutes after — an hour or so before the arrest. And old Ken fished around for a few minutes. “How do you know so much about drunks? Do you hang around bars all the time? She said, “No, sir. I were a jail matron in Alaska.” That was enough to — he fished him up a good one. He was fishing for a trout, and he caught him a water moccasin.
