The things one learns from reading about dead people. From today's NY Times Obits:Beate Sirota Gordon, the daughter of Russian Jewish parents who at 22 almost single-handedly wrote women’s rights into the Constitution of modern Japan, and then kept silent about it for decades, only to become a feminist heroine there in recent years, died on Sunday at her home in Manhattan. She was 89. http://www.nytimes.com/2013/01/02/world/asia/beate-gordon-fe...PhilRule Your Retirement Home Fool
The things one learns from reading about dead people. From today's NY Times Obits:And the things one learns from reading the messages here. Thanks for posting that Phil -- I probably would have missed it otherwise. I'll have to tell DW. She had met Mrs. Gordon a couple of times and was a great admirer. I think we have an autographed copy of her memoir.
