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.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
