(PF's getting mad at me for too short a message. =P )
Ride, Sally Ride. RIP. I always like her name, being a musician.
Pancreatic cancer can be insidious and hard to treat (my bother-in-law died from it). He lived long enough to see his 4 kids graduate from HS, and then it roared back and spread everywhere and took him down in short order.
RIP, Dr Ride!
I am sure she inspired so many young woman to dream of being scientists. Rest In Peace Sally.
Good night, and god speed Dr. Ride.
And thank you for introducing the big space hair look.
It always made me smile.
Perhaps as sad as her death itself is some of the crap surrounding it. I just heard on "Inner Space" that her wife might be denied benefits because of some idiotic policy about same-sex couples. It's always nice to see how the USA treats its heros if they don't conform.
:grumpy: Well that's just stupid, and just days after the first progressive marriage on a military base.
But I never even knew she had a girlfriend.
Her wife sounds nice.
