I remember this so well. She was so feisty - like Geraldine Ferraro - which she'd have to have been, I mean, look, that was and is Chicago! I had no idea she was 81 years old; I thought she was at least 20 years younger. So, when I saw the news this morning, I thought, What happened?

RIP, Madame Mayor!

I was in Chicagoland during her first campaign and part of her administration. She was feisty as you mentioned.
