This is a very short diary.  I am seeing tweets from New Mexico bloggers that our fellow New Mexican, barbwire, passed away tonight after struggling with cancer. Barb was the coordinator of Democracy for New Mexico, an important local political blog. She tweeted as @barbwire55 and was a force to be reckoned with here in New Mexico. She was also an active advocate for LGBT rights.

I have very little information other than what I am reading on twitter. Barb often left her pithy comments in my posts about New Mexico. She will be sorely missed.

Perhaps we could consider taking up a collection or sending flowers to her partner, MaryEllen. Or at least our very best wishes.

Sorry for the short diary. Los Anjalis or Land of Enchantment might have more information.

We will miss you barbwire.
