      It’s sad to grow up and watch the legends of your childhood pass away. My thoughts go to her family.

      It is interesting how even the supposedly liberal New York Times seems to go out of its way to try to hide the fact that she was a lesbian in its obituary.

      My mother, a staunch feminist, took me to see her shuttle launch. I still remember how exciting it was, watching from the beach, just a mile or so from Cape Canaveral. She was a pioneer in more ways than we knew.

      @Oh well: How do you know she was a lesbian? She had a husband before she had a wife.
