For those who haven’t noticed, the right hand column of this blog is an RSS reader showing the latest post of my favorite blogs. Tonight as I was going to close down for the night this headline from The Other McCain leaped out at me Jane Jamison, R.I.P., Right Wing News had one too Jane Jamison From Uncoverage Has Passed Away
Jane passed away Saturday–a total shock to me. Jane (not her real name) lived in suburban San Fransisco and needed to use the pseudonym because being a conservative pundit and a successful lawyer in “the people’s republic of San Fransisco” were not compatible.
I first met Jane at CPAC 2009. We were stuck on the line for people who “weren’t on the list.” We immediately struck up a friendship while the CPAC folks were trying to work out our blogger papers. We spent most of the next few days sitting together in the bloggers lounge.
It was hard not to be friends with Jane she radiated a warmth that was unique, even at a setting like CPAC where people who have had internet contact with each other were anxious to put the faces with the emails. Jane was different she was the one who walked around the bloggers lounge asking everyone if they needed anything (she had no responsibility but really cared).
From my short time with Jane, she showed a passion for almost everything she did. I still remember how excited she was when she found out Donald Trump was coming to CPAC, she even wrangled a meeting with Trump.
Now she is gone, apparently she had been ill but she never showed it
Goodbye Friend, you touched our lives and made us better. May you rest in peace.
