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.
