Goodbye, Barbara Bush
I didn't leap on the bandwagon when she passed but I'll miss Barbara Bush. She was a dependable image of what a First Lady ought to be, supportive of her husband but willing to voice her own opinions, gracious but not distant. She was a good example to subsequent First Ladies -- not all of them heeded it, but that's how it goes. I think she did her honest best.

"I saw to what extent the people among whom I lived could be trusted as good neighbors and friends; that their friendship was for summer weather only; that they did not greatly propose to do right; that they were a distinct race from me by their prejudices and superstitions."
