Farewell Carrie Fisher

Filed Under: 

I don't even have words. Carrie Fisher was a centerpiece of my childhood growing up in the 70's and 80's. As an adult I came to appreciate everything she stood for as a feminist and as a human being. 2016 has been a rough year all around, but this one really hurts.

Filed Under:

Filed Under:
