'Life of the party'

Jim Blanning, who ruined New Year's Eve in Aspen by making bomb threats before committing suicide, wasn't all bad, the sheriff says:
"He could be the life of a party," [Pitkin County Sheriff Bob] Braudis said. "He was a witty and intelligent man. He was a womanizer -- he had six or seven ex-wives. He was fun. And if you needed help, he would be there."
He was also a scam artist who served prison time for fraud, but other than that -- and his terroristic warnings of "mass death" unless banks forked over cash -- he was a great guy.
