Bidding Farewell to First Lady Maya Angelou

The incomparable Maya Angelou passed away this week and we mourn a great lady. I'm disappointed and annoyed that so little mention was made of it. Stop me if you've heard this tirade, but when some druggie has-been dies, we hear about it for weeks. Yes, I know Maya did a stint as a prostitute/brothel owner. Well, women, especially black women, did what they had to in order to survive. And survive she did. Maya was a wunderkind. Actor, dancer, activist, writer, singer, diplomat--she truly was a modern Renaissance woman.   Bidding Farewell to First Lady Maya Angelou
