  •  And early on, too. (5+ / 0-)

    I wrote about my impressions on Yahoo News and can't republish here since they own the rights, which they paid me for.

    Old people are like old houses - lots of character, but the plumbing leaks.

    •  Very nicely written tribute to your Congresswoman. (5+ / 0-)

      That must've been extremely distressful for her to know that acknowledgments were going out in her name, yet she was unable to know about them given her intensive recovery process.

      I share the sentiments of others here that it is so refreshing that she is one of those rare elected officials who puts her constituents' needs above her own career aspirations. It is unfortunate that we have to lose such a good person from our Congress, but I hope that she is able to recover fully and live a normal, fulfilling life, sooner than later.
