RIP Sally Ride

I just read this and felt compelled to post. Sally Ride, along with any man or woman who straps themselves on to a million pounds of explosives is a HERO! She died of Pancreatic Cancer today. RIP brave lady.

Useless Factoid: The second American woman in space (if anyone remembers) was Dr Anna Fisher. And by coincidence she was raised right here in San Pedro Kalifornia. She graduated from San Pedro High School four years ahead of me but her Brother Richard was a very good friend of mine in school. We used to spend our lunch hours playing ping-pong and ranking on the black dudes by the gym building at Richard Henry Dana Junior High School.
