Stephanie Tubbs Jones

Via the AP, I just thought I should make a brief comment about the death of Representative Stephanie Tubbs Jones.  She died of a brain aneurysm yesterday at age 58.  Tubbs Jones was the first black woman to represent Ohio, and one of a very small number of female minorities in Congress.  She was an active opponent of the Iraq War (even way back in 2002 when it was a more radical idea), and other such liberal causes.  Just thought we should give some props to an intelligent woman who by all accouts was a tireless advocate for the greater good.
