There Goes the Ruddy Two-shoes

It was a life well spent that ended two days ago. Del Martin, who I also mentioned in this entry, passed away on Wednesday, August 27th — two months after wedding her partner of fifty-five years, Phyllis Lyon. She was 87.

Del has been a strong pioneer for women and gay rights, and her life will be remembered as one filled with passion, action, triumph . . . and meaning.

You, Del, are an inspiration to many. Thank you for everything.
