She is his mother.
I don’t really care if these people are libs, or even out and out commies, suicide is a great tragedy that I’ve suffered in my own family. I don’t think suicide in the elderly is uncommon as they can often suffer from depression. I read about this woman’s death in the Post, but I don’t think it said who she was. My sympathies to her family and to Anderson Cooper also, I never heard about his brother killing himself.
It’s just a brutal thing.
I have that book also. She certainly had a privileged and interesting life. Probably a big lib. Perhaps a Trump presidency was more than she could bear.

Interesting - still alive - that’s amazing.
She felt deserted and sought death in an attention grabbing manner.

Yes she was unlucky in that regard.

Didn't even make the top 50 most common names as of the 2010 Census. Scroll down to page 8:

Well, of course you know better than a national statistical database of millions of respondents, because you were one person in one location with a headset.
Many years working and personal knowledge and all that. You sure have a big ol’ chip on your shoulder. If you just have to have the last word, go for it. You’ll probably be constipated if you don’t.
