    She was old in 1930, odds were she wouldn't have lived too much longer than she did.

    Meanwhile, I celebrate that she LIVED.

    My first reaction when I came into this thread was "good". But thinking more about it I wonder if, like most things that politics touches, she was turned into a bastardization of what she originally intended.

    Things that started off good but were tainted by politics, greed, and corruption:
    N.O.W.
    N.C.L.U.
    Unions
    Nobel Peace Prize
    N.A.A.C.P.
    The Tea Party

    and perhaps Mother Jones.

    My first reaction when I saw you responded to the thread: "Another flame" :rolleyes:

    Thanks for proving me wrong.

    Still, I don't think she was "tainted by politics, greed, and corruption" at all.
