I had the honor to speak in front of the Women Lawyers Association about Angie King, about the woman, the feminist, the women’s advocate….but above all about the fierce and loyal friend.

In Celebration and Thanksgiving for the life of Janet Potter 1932-2013

The mass was lovely, the hymns melodies filled the church with talented pianist Janis Johnson …

We always laughed about her not “using a computer.”..I always forgot and told her..Jan, I will send …

We were supposed to have lunch together this month, something that I was looking forward to. But then, I got the news that Jan Potter had taken ill and died. I will miss her. Jan was a lady; she did not suffer fools gladly, but she was always polite. She didn’t just talk the talk, but she acted on her convictions. Jan was a model to us how we should live our lives if we are to make a difference.
Jan was one of the few, maybe the only, Republican I …

Susan Rice, U.S. ambassador to the U.N., was in line to follow Hillary Clinton as secretary of state. The right wing unjustly smeared Rice, and despite the efforts of NOW and allied women’s organizations, she was pushed aside and replaced with a white male nominee. And now we hear that Secretary of Labor Hilda Solis is leaving her post. Who will be …
