It looks like Cathy Seipp doesn't have much longer to live. She'd been quite sick for a while but I didn't know her illness had progressed this far.
I was introduced to her a few years ago, and since then, whenever I've gone to an LA party with bloggers about, she was there. She had a fine blog but was even more entertaining and informative in person.
Columbus Guy says: Yes, respect and best wishes to her.
