sent a small ripple through Trent Lott yesterday by announcing that he will resign by the end of this year. Lott's resignation ends his 35-year career in the Senate, and comes a full five years before the end of his six-year term. Washington
In a prepared statement, Lott explained that he decided to resign because:
". . . we went to First Baptist Jackson, and . . . Stan Buckley, just happened to preach on Ecclesiastes 3:1: 'There's a time for everything and everything -- a special time for everything under heaven': I believe that's the paraphrase, but he just seemed to be speaking to me."
