"Knight Rider" Fans Optimistic Sen. Kit Bond Will Return To Acting



In a speech to the Missouri General Assembly this morning, Senator Christopher "Kit" Bond announced that he won't seek a fifth term in office in 2010.

"In 1972, I became Missouri's youngest Governor. Ladies and Gentlemen, I do not aspire to become Missouri's oldest Senator," said Bond.

The 69-year-old Republican served two terms as Missouri's governor before being elected to the Senate in 1986. Bond has not indicated how he'll spend his retirement, but sources tell Riverfront Times that the senator has not ruled out a return to acting.
