Question - what was the name and position of a prominent figure in the H.W. Bush administration who died quite suddenly (and conveniently?) right before he was to testify in a scandal-related trial?

My 2 8year-old Snowshoe sisters, which is a fairly large domestic cat breed, have recently started wanting more food. Perhaps because because they were rescued cats and may have experienced real hunger during their 1st year, they have hardly ever left food in their dishes. Not wanting to over feed them, I have been giving them each a total of 1 can of Fancy Feast per day along with 1/2 cup of dry food in the morning in a common bowl. Plus a small amount of treats or dry food right before bedtime.
As the weather has gotten colder this season, however, theyve started wanting more food before setting down for the day. So, my question is, how much is enough, or too much?
Anyone get the answer? I was completely stumped.

Republican Christine Drazan has conceded to Democrat Tina Kotek in Oregons race for governor.
Drazans concession comes two days after The Oregonian/OregonLive called the governors race for Kotek on Wednesday morning.
In results tallied as of 3 p.m. Friday, Drazan trailed Kotek by 64,259 votes, at 47.1% to 43.4%. Koteks lead widened considerably Thursday after Multnomah County, Oregons largest and bluest county, finished tabulating results from ballots received through Wednesday.
Drazan, the former state House Republican leader, said Friday that she had spoken to Kotek, the former longtime Democratic speaker of the House, and wished her and the state only the best.

New D.B. Cooper suspect revealed through lab analysis of skyjackers tie, just in time for CooperCon https://www.oregonlive.com/history/2022/11/new-db-cooper-suspect-revealed-through-lab-analysis-of-skyjackers-tie-just-in-time-for-coopercon.html
This much you can say about Eric Ulis: he doesnt give up.
The true-crime investigator, who organizes the annual CooperCon in Vancouver, believed for years that a man named Sheridan Peterson was the celebrated skyjacker D.B. Cooper. He told The Oregonian/OregonLive in 2019 he was 98 percent certain Peterson was the pseudonymous criminal whos inspired songs, countless books and even a feature film.
But unlike many other dedicated Cooperites trying to bust open the only unsolved airline hijacking in U.S. history, Ulis is willing to reevaluate his assumptions when the evidence doesnt quite line up.
He abandoned the late Peterson as a suspect about a year ago when he couldnt find anyone in the former smokejumpers long life who knew him to puff on cigarettes. The skyjacker, who bought a $20 plane ticket at Portland International Airport on Nov. 24, 1971, under the name Dan Cooper -- and later jumped out of Northwest Orient Flight 305 with $200,000 in ransom smoked cigarette after cigarette while onboard the Boeing 727 that day.
But while Ulis gave up on Peterson, he didnt give up on the Cooper case.
And a Strong Night for DeSantis.

Oregon voters passed one of the countrys strictest gun control measures, a long-sought goal of a grassroots faith-based campaign.
Partial returns tallied as of 11:15 p.m. showed Measure 114 leading 51% to 49%.
Most of the votes left to be tallied were in Multnomah, Washington and Clackamas counties, all favoring or heavily favoring the measure.
The measure will require Oregonians to obtain a permit to buy a gun after completing a firearms safety course and would ban the sale or transfer of magazines that hold more than 10 rounds of ammunition.
It also will close the so-called Charleston loophole by requiring state police to complete full background checks on buyers with permits before any gun sale or transfer. Under federal law now, firearms dealers can sell guns without a completed background check if the check takes longer than three business days.
