And Speaking of Wonder Women

Elizabeth Taylor was a goddess above other goddesses in the film age of goddesses. She was beautiful, poised, exasperating, gutsy, sharp and fascinating. And that was just on screen. Off screen, she stole husbands, boozed and screamed, got married a lot, delivered looks of withering scorn and princess grace, and oddly enough, helped women’s lib while selling diamonds and perfume. She survived deadly illness, broken hips and Richard Burton.  She was a vocal activist for HIV/AIDS. She won two Oscars and was a Kennedy Center Honoree. She was…well, she was Elizabeth Taylor. And today, she passed from the world due to congestive heart failure. The stars dim just a bit.
