Sad.

Some people on this board probably didn't agree with her politics, but she was a very good-hearted person. In my opinion, she was at her best when she was taking the blowhards, Democrat or Republican, in the Texas Legislature down a couple of notches. I had the chance to meet her and attend an event at her house a few years back, right after 9/11 actually. She was incredibly nice and down-to-earth. A lot of political-types and liberals talk-the-talk about being "of the people" or whatever, but I think she genuinely cared about folks and just liked people. That motivated her. It's a real loss. Fuck cancer.
