The Gateway (Betty Ford Memorial Edition)
Betty Ford, the greatest First Lady of my lifetime.
Alev ha-sholem. May her memory (like her life) be a blessingI think I need a drink. Former first lady Betty Ford dies at the age of 93 www.cnn.com
ADDENDUM: As a reader has noted, this analysis sort of ignores the existence of Hillary Clinton.
I guess I don't think of Hillary as a First Lady; I think of her as a counsellor. She did not paly the First Lady role, which is fine with me, for she played a role far more important.

I will note that, for about two decades (before he eventually changed his position), Joe Lentol voted for the death penalty in contravention of his Church's position (that respect for "life" is a seamless garment), and they never once returned a check to him.

The story of Dan Feldman's mother's 1973 suicide after being stricken with cancer reminds me of how, during Feldman's 1980 race for a Brooklyn Assembly seat, sleazebag political strumpet Alan Rocoff (currently under indictment) put out a piece of lit for Feldman opponent Ruben Margulies, accusing Feldman of living with his mother in the Rockaways.
