    You make it sound as if aging and death are the only two options.

    Well I suppose you can freeze your body or just your head and wait until science can dethaw you and cure you of old age and whatever it was that killed you or give you a spanking new young body.

    That's how I've always felt about them even though I didn't vote for 41 -- or 43 (until the 2nd time around). And regardless of their (and my) politics, I've always adored Babs. This news, while not shocking, still makes me sad.

    Always liked Barbara Bush. Bush's can't stand Trump either. At least some Republicans have a conscience.

    Best wishes to Mrs. Bush and the Bush Family.




    when they went low...she kept her head held high.
    I have serious regrets about THIS 1st Lady. She didn't take her muzzle off. She was smart, funny, and opinionated and likely the smartest one out of the whole damn Bush bunch. I'd have loved to know what SHE really thought about 'all of it'.

    She gets to go out on HER terms. We should all be so lucky!

    Anyway...

    Ditto on her. Ditto on him up to his SCOTUS pick. That negated him forever for me and that decision is here to stay. And why I didn't vote for him.

    Someone else may have already pointed this out -- but it's 72 years they've been married. That's amazing.

    Given the women of her generation I'd say she was more outspoken then most for her time. Young people forget that a wife and mother 50 years ago was suppose to be silent and always supportive of her husband and her grown sons married and on their own. Not so much with their grown daughters married on their own. Mother and grown daughter in private would have open and frank conversations but, even then, the husbands wouldn't be around. The America of 5O years ago wasn't much different than the way Muslim countries treat their women today. A woman back then wasn't to speak in public unless spoken to and her opinion wasn't offered unless it was requested in mixed company and then it was expected that even if she disagreed with her husband privately she didn't say so publically. Years ago women would go in one room and talk and men would go into another room to talk. I know that is hard for a young people to understand but that was the world of WWII wifes and mothers. If you were not a wife of a WWII vet or a mother of WWII son you will not remember that. You might if you were a child of that mother but I suppose it would depend on how old you were back then to understand what was going on in those different groups.

    Absolutely, she was a woman of her times and 'trained well'. All the more why I would have liked for her to let it rip. Perspective.
