Ford's Widow Locked Out

betty_fordPresident Gerald Ford's widow has been denied access to her late husband's home at the order of his lawyer and accountant.

Betty Ford arrived at the California home today to find it padlocked. Lawyer Buddy Dallas and accountant David Cannon were able to prevent Mrs. Ford from entering the property as she did not own the deed to the home.

"This is my home," she said. "I don't have any money. I don't have anywhere to go."

Ford, 93, was the longest living former president, surpassing Ronald Reagan, who died in June 2004, by more than a month.

Betty,
Meet me at the Old Ebbit Grill in DC. First round's on me!

(Sorry for the really tasteless joke, but without the Sty Splasher to slap around, I have to say something inflammatory to get a rise out of someone!)

Apparently she's a Bloomer not a Ford.
