OK, she doesn’t swear at Charlie Crist. Mrs. Young is being ladylike about it.
This e-mail is to officially advise you that your presence at my husband’s memorial services will be unacceptable. I have watched over the years, as Bill had, your transparent attempts to manipulate the political arena. I don’t want my husband’s memorial service to be another opportunity for that and I will not tolerate anyone turning this into a platform for political gain.
Please honor my families request.
Widow of Congressman Bill Young
If you define ‘ladylike’ as including the subtext If you ignore my command then I will feel perfectly justified in setting dogs upon you… which, yeah, I think that I will define it that way, at least when it applies to situations involving Charlie Crist.

PS: Charlie Crist will not have an easy time of it as he thinks if he runs for Governor next year as a Democrat. The people that he normally fundraised from in the past more or less share the same opinion of him as Mrs. Young does; and his new buddies are going to make the man crawl a little. Or a lot: Crist has said a lot of opportunistic things over the years.
PPS: That Paul Wellstone funeral debacle cast a long shadow, huh?
