NPR's Diane Rehm (@drshow) shares the painful story of her husband’s death https://t.co/b60rHezzI8

This morning I have been listening to Diane Rehm’s final broadcast on NPR. Earlier she hosted a panel discussion on the Trump transition. What a loss her departure is. As a gay caller said with appreciation, she has had numerous programs over the years on LGBT issues. (I note that her account of her husband’s painful death gave a boost to DC’s death with dignity bill, which GLAA supported and which was signed earlier this week by Mayor Bowser.) The sound of her voice has told many people they were in a safe harbor. Judy Collins just called in and briefly sang to her. Honors and plaudits to this exemplar of civil discourse.
