Oh, my. We’re losing Mama Liberty.

Via Claire I read this terrible news…

I won’t be involved [in Price of Liberty] any more because I am dying of an aggressive cancer and have little idea how much time I have left. I am blessed with a wonderful family and many good neighbors and friends, so will not be alone or lonesome in that process.

I’ve been worried that maybe the fact she hasn’t been around lately meant she was unwell. She will be missed.

You shouldn't ask these questions of a paranoid recluse, you know.

    Sigh…Hugs for her and her care-givers. I’m sadden have they have to go through that.

  3. Ben says:

    I also enjoyed her input, and had noticed that it had been missing lately. I’m so sorry to hear this news!

    dammit!! just dammit.

  5. Mike says:

    I honestly don’t know what to say. To put it mildly, I’m flabbergasted. To say she will be missed is an understatement.

    Well that stinks. Best wishes to her family.

    Just visited her not so long ago when she seemed wonderfully chipper and doing quite well. I will get down to see her soon, see what I can do to help out. Thank you for letting us know. **

  8. I appreciate your passing along the news. I’ve stopped by TPOL a few times in recent weeks for the very reason that I hadn’t seen her comments lately in some of the places where I expected to.

    Thanks for passing this along Joel. I’ve been following your blog off and on for several years. As a matter of fact it was Mama Liberty who recommended TUAK to me. I first met her back in the TMM days, circa (never mind), when I was much younger, much more foolish, very angry at he world, and still suffering from the occasional burst of collectivism, which I didn’t even recognise such.

    She helped me get my head on straight, and prioritise and sort out what was really important, from what really doesn’t matter. I may not always have agreed with her ideas, opinions and statements or judgements, but then, she never required that of anyone, with the exception of not violating anyone elses property rights and not violqating their right to self ownership.

    I learned a lot from her during the time we corresponded. When the time comes, I’ll be raising a glass to her.

    I saw her in, I think it was May, and she was still going, but a lot thinner, I was there to help relocate some of her children, she was in good spirits, and we had a good visit. it will be a sad day when she goes.

  11. Who...Me? says:

    Damn, I need to go over to TMM and send her an email. She is one hell of a lady.

To the stake with the heretic!
