Another Progressive Blogger passes.

I found out late last night that “Penlan” of the blog Politics For The People has passed away this week. We are losing far too many good people out here; first Bruce Mcdonald this past December, and now this bit of news.

She hadn’t blogged much recently, as you’ll see from her last blogpost, but she had been especially prolific in her Tweeting on Twitter, just up to the time before she passed away. She talked and debated with a lot of folks on Twitter (including me). That is seen by the fact two nationally syndicated columnists – David Akin and Susan Delacourt – have taken it upon themselves to post public tributes to her at their own blogs.

This was a lady very passionate about her politics, and the online political world will be a poorer place without her.

RIP Penny.

    I have a lot of respect for all those that engage, without malice, in political debates.

    Doubly so for those that do so in such an open forum as yourself and these others. I believe Malcolm Gladwell calls these sorts of people “connectors”. Regardless of what they are called, they are making a difference in our society.

    The political discourse on Twitter certainly won’t be the same without Penlan, indeed. A gentle soul who loved the good fight.

    Yes, David Akin and Susan Delacourt both had moving tributes for her.
