Ron Lollar, the veteran GOP state representative from Bartlett, was making a show of gently teasing his friend and fellow Republican David Kustoff, after Kustoff, the congressman from Tennessee’s 8th District, had been the featured speaker at a National Federation of Independent Businesses luncheon at the Regions Bank on Poplar. Referring to a recent occasion on which they’d been together, administering to constituents in some of the east Shelby County turf they represent in common, Lollar said, “He ate an ice cream cone!” Kustoff, known for his disciplined habits, including an unvarying wake-up time of 3:15 a.m. and an insistence on limiting his dietary intake to one meal a day, in the evening, blinked his eyes momentarily but made a quick recovery.
