I just want to briefly acknowledge the death from natural causes of former president of the Philippines, Corazon Aquino.
I recall the circumstances of her coming to power quite vividly and she gave hope and courage to her people. The Philippines is a crazy country, yet she did achieve in quite a few areas. Not only hope either, she brought back some respect to the country after the farce of Ferdinand and Imelda Marcos. Not bad for a former non political housewife.
I don't know if she was a good person, but she seemed to be the right person for the time.
