Trent Lott to resign

JACKSON, Miss.—Sen. Trent Lott of Mississippi, the Senate's No. 2 Republican,
plans to resign his seat by the end of the year, congressional and Bush
administration officials said Monday.
o rly? A congressional official says Lott has "other opportunities" he wishes to pursue. Factors leading to his resignation may include the furor over his comments made in 2002 about Strom Thurmond...remember? Lott, who lives in Mississippi, was also affected by Hurrican Katrina, and the government's response to it.
