Geraldine Ferraro: Rest in Peace

Someone from Orange County, New York, the first woman to become the choice for a running mate has passed away at 75 years of age after a tough battle with blood cancer.
When the presidential candidate Walter Mondale chose her for the vice presidential candidate a lot of women saw their dream come true. Geraldine Ferraro opened up a lot of doors for opportunities for women. Very gracious in spite of losing a senate seat, she willingly worked to help Senator Schumer for his election with a smile.

So sad. She did good things, though.

I admired her also, and I agree that she was different from Palin...a great loss indeed. I enjoyed your post on not smoking. I'm happy that it's finally illegal to smoke in restaurants, and our hospital is a no smoking facility (make sense!) but many coworkers still do smoke even though they see the effects on our patients.
