Dear All:

This news is heartbreaking and tough, particularly for those of us who knew
her.  She was forthright Marxian political economist and genuine activist,
with an superb historical understanding and sharp sense of methodology. The
last time I saw her, she was attending the URPE Summer Conference
(2003)--and my talks on the oil and US invasion of Iraq.  What a great
loss--what a great loss....

Thanks, Jerry.
