Bruce and Alice King came as a set. Once one piece was gone, the other wasn’t very functional. They campaigned together as a two-fer long before Bill and Hillary picked up on it.
Alice was Bruce’s campaign treasurer and he never spent a cent without her approval. One night when I pulled out a tattered check to pay for his book, “Cowboy in the Roundhouse,” Bruce mentioned that Alice also gave him only one check at a time.
When Alice died about this time last year, Jeanette and I were in an Abu Dhabi hospital with extremely little communication with the outside world. It is a business center with no desire to cater to tourists.
When Bruce died, we were floating on the Amazon, hundreds of miles from any communication except for jungle drums. Thus, it seems appropriate for Jeanette and me to talk about Bruce and Alice together now.
Bruce knew my father first. He was president of the college in Silver City. So Bruce put me in that category, to remember my name. “How’s your dad down in Silver City?” he would ask, hoping that sometime during the conversation, he would remember my name.
