Death is always big news, especially the death of Lindy Boggs. As a congresswoman, she worked very hard to elevate American women by being their advocate in Washington. She died at 97, after almost a century of living, having witnessed the changes in America. As always, as the Bambara of Mali say, “Every time an old person dies, it is as if a library has burnt down.”
