    I was always impressed with that Lady. Her perspective on events and her delivery was always direct but respectful.

    A local station in Cincinnati used to have her on live once a week for 10-15 minutes to talk about the news and news business.
    She was a delight, didn't take herself all that seriously and was respectful of the differing (conservative) opinions of the local host. I always enjoyed her segment.

    Btw, she was the daughter of former Speaker of the House Hale Boggs who died in the crash of a small plane in Alaska in the early 70s. To my knowledge, that a/c has never been found.

    She was one of the last of an era.
