End of an Era

I just learned from CNN that Lady Bird Johnson, one of only two First Ladies ever to live past the age of 90, passed away today. It's interesting to note from the Wikipedia page that she personally knew every First Lady from Eleanor Roosevelt to Laura Bush, but not all that surprising. From what I remember hearing about her early on, she was always very active even well past the passing of her husband, President Lyndon Baines Johnson.

Everything I've ever heard of her confirms that she was a real class act, one of a dying breed in the political arena, that's for sure.
