Jeane Kirkpatrick: RIP

Ms. Kirkpatrick (1926 – 2006) was the US Ambassador to the UN during President Reagan’s first term. She was a staunch anti-communist and often a breath of fresh air – not an easy thing to do with what appeared to be a nearly constant scowl. A former girlfriend of mine worked for her at the UN and the woman hated Kirkpatrick. Apparently Ambassador Kirkpatrick was quite the taskmaster. That former girl friend is now at the CIA (the last I heard) and probably bitching about her current boss. To the friends and family of Jeane Kirkpatrick: my prayers are with you at this difficult time.
