    Seems like the notice of her failing health was really to announce she was declining fast.

  15. Usually happens right before someone dies. They'll be lucid and talkative and then they'll pass away. It's weird.

    RIP Barbara Bush... While I disagreed with a lot of her families policies she was always a Class ACT.

    I truly hope that in this difficult time for the Bush Family the President can show some class and not fuck up what should be a simple gesture of sympathy.

    She went to a home for HIV infected infants and hugged them and hugged adults with AIDS. Huge deal at the time, hysteria about AIDS was all over the place.
