about bobbolink:

a few weeks ago, there was an op asking if anybody had heard from, or knew anything about, bobbolink. I checked with several people who knew her, although nobody seemed to have any information. finally, yesterday, I did hear from one person, who said he had, in fact, gotten an email from her recently. No information in it about where she is staying, or how she is doing, but she is alive.

Sorry I couldn't get more than that.

34. I did not know she suffered from a mental illness..how sad. That OP is 100% accurate.

Reagan was a destructive force in the US on so many levels of government..here we
are in 2014 and the impact still remains from those policies.

I think we need to highlight these types of consequences to anyone who may not
feel motivated to vote in 2014.

16. Thank you! She just totally checked out

I was worried. She would not answer any messages. Glad she is still alive, and if anyone finds out more, let us know.

17. Glad to hear this.

She once sent me an email, so I had her name, or at least the name attached to the email account she sent it from - now obviously, most of us have 'dummy' accounts with fake 'real names' attached, but fwiw, I did a search on her and it looked as if someone with that name (and there are probably dozens in the US) had passed away not long ago.

So I'm glad to hear that this was not the same person, and that she is still out there fighting the good fight. I look forward to the day when she returns to DU to update us on what's been going on with her, and her lobbying activities on behalf of the homeless and poor.

18. That's good to know

I hope somehow, somewhere she managed to luck into some services to get her off the street and back on the rails. She was a great poster until she went off 'em.

Of course, living on the street does that to most people a lot faster than it did to her. I wish her nothing but the best.

19. Thanks for checking on her and the update.

When I returned after my self-imposed vacation, I missed seeing her posts.

If she's checking in at all, I hope she sees that she's missed and maybe she'll drop us a line or several.

23. She wouldn't have been if only she'd have been a popular writer of blog articles on the Internet.



To be honest, I've forgotten but I think I was a moderator at the time so even if I knew I wouldn't say.

It's good to hear that she is still out and about and I hope she's doing well.

Her life was once threatened by another DU member, it was ugly.

27. Oh, thanks for correcting me. I hadn't thought to check.

Usually I would have looked for a most recent post but didn't this time.

Like a few others, I don't think she ever made the transition to DU3:
