Madame Chiang Dies

Sometimes, when someone who used to be someone dies, I think to myself that they had been better off than I thought they were, since I assumed they had died years ago. Madame Chiang was like that. The woman was 106, one of the few, and one of the last, to live through parts of three centuries and two millennia. To give you an idea of how old she was, the Fox News report says that she is survived by the grandchildren and great-grandchildren of her stepson. She outlived her step-grandchildren.
