Former Gov. Don Seigelman Tuesday was released from a Birmingham hospital, just four days after heart bypass surgery. "The people that were looking for an early death from Siegelman have been disappointed once again," Siegelman joked, as he stood outside St. Vincent's. The 71-year old Democrat said tests last week showed a "dangerous blockage which could have triggered immediate death from a heart attack." Siegelman's son, Joseph, praised the doctors: "My dad was Blessed to be in the right place at the right time. Dr. Parks' discovery was able to be followed by surgery by a renowned heart surgeon, Dr. Richardson, who by the Grace of God was available to operate immediately."
