  1. Valedictorian at UCLA . . . wow! What a brilliant and incredibly well-educated woman, who was treated rudely by a bunch of corrupt, mental midgets whom she could have, and did, run intellectual circles around. One tool treated her particularly smugly; I wonder what his educational background is.

  2. She was/is an inspiration.
    I applaud her tireless efforts to strive for social justice.
    She made an enormous impact in the political scene, holding elected officials accountable for their actions.
    She will be greatly missed.
    Condolences to all her family & friends.
