    has been treated for lung cancer?  Or maybe you just didn't read the damn article.

    •  I read it, I thought (0+ / 0-)

      I guess I am just beside myself with rage after the DC hold outs and all.

      Scratch my comments if they can be and accept my apologies to all.

        Than 6 years!

        She has always run hard on gun control.  

        She is a woman who has had many burdens to carry in her personal life.  I was very sorry to hear about her lung cancer.

          apparently, after returning and reading, out of line and perhaps out of mine. Embarrassingly, no excuse or reasoning. My apology please.

          I wish both of the a wonderful retirement and future.

          Yes she has met with more than a fair share of undue burden. I hope her own recovery is maintaining and will endure.

          Thanks you for the comment and bit of history kishik!

            Knowing the family from which her opponent hails. Becker expected things would always come to him given his family background.  He was a high school jock and not very smart.  I have been more than happy every time she won an election.  She did not plan a life in politics, it was thrust at her.  I think she did well given how she entered into it.
