Has anyone noticed how many youngish famous people are dying of pancreatic cancer? Supposedly it's pretty rare. It makes me wonder if the overall incidence has gone up recently, or of this is just a statistical fluke.

Slate.com has 3 stories about her on their Double X page ( Women's issues), about the fact that she was a lesbian, and left behind a female life partner of 29 years. I hadn't heard any mention of that anywhere else, and it is, of course, of no relevance to her work or achievements, as unimportant as the prejudice against gay and lesbian marriage or lifestyle. Her business, her private life, of no concern to any outsider. I mourn for her loss, and for the sorrow of her partner.
