Cathy Seipp: Condolences from the Left Coast
***Cathy Seipp died earlier today (3/21). GM's Corner has a nice tribute to her. The official obit is here.
Word has it that journalist Cathy Seipp, who wrote the wonderful, weekly column "From the Left Coast" for National Review, as well as being a freelance contributor to a variety of well-known publications, is in the last stages of lung cancer. A post at her blog titled "Remembering Cathy" has elicited an outpouring of thoughts and prayers from fellow writers and readers alike. It's a good place to go and share your condolences.
Cathy has been a shining example for us Left Coast journalists and her voice will be sorely missed. But her words will live on.
Update: Amy Alkon, a good friend of Cathy's and a fellow L.A. journalist, has posted a moving tribute at her blog.
