    RIP Cokie Roberts - One of the journalism greats

    I always enjoyed hearing her on NPR. She had a solid way of explaining what was going on in the Supreme Court and in Congress, making often bland subject matter very listenable and understandable.

    Passed away at 75 due to breast cancer. Sigh.
    Q "Why do you like Duke, you didn't even go there." A "Because my art school didn't have a basketball team."
