Flowers is the Least We Can Do

She may not be your mother, but you should do something nice and chipin to send some flowers to Helen Thomas. The only way to improve the endeavor would be for Stephen Colbert to deliver them to her on behalf of the Internet. If you need more reasons than her questioning of the administration's use of torture, you can also look at her contribution to Stephen Colbert's roast of the President at the 2006 White House Correspondent's Dinner, the entirety of which is included below. For more information about this illustrious figure of American journalism, here is the standard wikibio, a series of opinion pieces, her website, and a look at how popular she became after the infamous exchange between her and President Bush in 2006. Mail her if this email address still works, But I'm sure a hand-written letter would be much more appreciated, c/o Hearst News Service 1850 K Street, NW Washington, D.C. 20006.
