When the Senate was voting last week on whether to halt the filibuster that has been delaying passage of President Clinton's economic stimulus package, Alabama Democrat Richard C. Shelby did more when his name was called than simply vote "no."

Jeremiah Denton, the downed Navy pilot who was paraded before television cameras by the Viet Cong and confirmed U.S. suspicions of prisoner maltreatment during the Vietnam War by blinking out the word "torture" in Morse code, has died.
