6. Check out this hateful post at www.chron.com
From the Houston Chronicle comments by AwakeandVocal:

She died at age 58 after her political party raised the social security collecting age for younger people up to 67 (and counting). They even helped see to it that George W. Bush's initiative to enable us to have private accounts that we can pass on to our loved ones if we die early like Stephanie Tubbs has just done NEVER even got voted on in Congress. We're supposed to miss this elected official? I won't miss Teddy Kennedy either.

I might not have the quote right but she stood up and called out the theft of 2004 in Ohio.

We need a "Boxer Type" Flower Fund Drive for her funeral.

Once there was a way to get back home
Sleep pretty darling do not cry
And I will sing a lullabye

Smiles awake you when you rise

16. ALERT: Cleveland Clinic: Rep. Stephanie Tubbs Jones has died
Source: WKYC

EAST CLEVELAND -- A Cleveland Clinic spokeswoman says U.S. Rep. Stephanie Tubbs Jones has died.

The Clinic released a statement just before 7 p.m. which said the congresswoman's condition since suffering a brain aneurysm and hemorrhage had declined throughougt the day. Rep. Tubbs Jones was pronounced dead at 6:12 p.m.

The clinic statement continues as follows: "She dedicated her life in public service to helping others and will continue to do so through organ donations. Please keep her family and friends in your thoughts and prayers during this very difficult time."

At an earlier press conference, Dr. Gus Kious, president of Huron Hospital, where the congresswoman was treated, told the media that Tubbs Jones suffered the brain aneurysm in an inaccessible part of her brain. The aneurysm burst causing Tubbs Jones' brain to hemorrhage. Kious said Tubbs Jones was left with limited brain function as a result.

18. I always liked her. She was a fighter, and we need more of that.
She campaigned honorably for Hillary Clinton, but when she lost, she was a 100% team player, and got on board the Obama train.

My condolences to her constituents and her family.

20. Why? Why do the heroes have to die when the villains live on?

If there was a god Cheney would have suffered a coma that lasted years.
If there was a god Bush would have died choking on that pretzel.
If there was a god Wellstone's plane would have landed safely.
If there was a god neither Kennedy would have been killed by the Republican Party.
If there was a god US Rep. Tubbs Jones would be walking around today, being the wonderful person and hero that speaks truth to power that we have always known.

97. Ivins Tubbs-Jones Richards Jordan -- to all i say...
I am not resigned to the shutting away of loving hearts in the hard ground.
So it is, and so it will be, for so it has been, time out of mind:
Into the darkness they go, the wise and the lovely. Crowned
With lilies and with laurel they go; but I am not resigned.
Lovers and thinkers, into the earth with you.
Be one with the dull, the indiscriminate dust.
A fragment of what you felt, of what you knew,
A formula, a phrase remains,--but the best is lost.
The answers quick and keen, the honest look, the laughter, the love, --
They are gone. They are gone to feed the roses. Elegant and curled
Is the blossom. Fragrant is the blossom. I know. But I do not approve.
More precious was the light in your eyes than all the roses in the world.
Down, down, down into the darkness of the grave,
Gently they go, the beautiful, the tender, the kind;
Quietly they go, the intelligent, the witty, the brave.
I know. But I do not approve. And I am not resigned.

-- Edna St. Vincent Millay

66. God is just testing us
to see if we have the faith to withstand the evil of the archconservatives who have bumped off liberal for centuries.

Historical examples:

1. The Pharisees killing Jesus (they used Rome as hit men).
2. John Wilkes Booth (pro-slavery) offing Abe Lincoln

...the list goes on and on and on...

22. RIP

This is so sad. She was a wonderful and highly intelligent person and the antithesis of the do-nothing U.S. Rep.

Does anyone remember her as one of the earliest featured Reps on Colbert's "Better Know A District"? She was one of the first who got that he was doing an act, and completely bought into it and came off as warm and charming.

Thoughts and prayers to her family and friends.

54. Such a gracious lady, may she rest in peace. My thoughts are
with her family, this is a shocking way to go and terrible for the family. I know, I lost my husband the same way June 27th. The doctors told me it was quick and without pain. I pray it is so for all who meet this sudden death. There are hardly any words that can convey enough heartfelt sympathy for the family.

She was a great lady.

She was a great lady, and it's too bad the Democratic Party didn't measure up to her courage.

84. I feel terrible.
We might be different shades, but I would have been proud to have her as my sister. So many good things about her that paralleled mine. Logic, smarts, calling a spade, a spade. She was so right about so many things. What an amazing woman.

Always a voice of conscience in Congress. Always put the Constitution first. Always sharp and on the ball.

I actually thought she was going to pull through there for a minute. :cry: :cry:

What a classy lady. :patriot:
