Geraldine Ferraro dies at 75

That's One Giant Leap For Womankind

Noted by MSNBC Twitter as the First Woman and First Italian American to head a major Party Ticket, we are saddened to learn that her passing has been announced.

When I lived in West Islip, NY and visited Fire Island on weekends, I always believed that the bi-plane beating me to the party deck was carrying Representative Ferraro. I know now that it was more likely a water taxi, but back then, whilst I still aspired to Public Office, it was one of the perks I truly believed well-heeled donors accorded their representatives. Those were the days before campaign finance reform, but, hey! I had no doubt she earned it.
