I did some research on her career, and found she interviewed Shirley Temple, Eleanor Roosevelt and Mamie Eisenhower, while working at the Dayton Journal Herald as a reporter.
I was reminded of Erma the other day, when I was shopping at a bookstore-- I saw the book, Family--The Ties That Bind And Gag!--and of course I had to buy it.
So many people miss her, and in my opinion there is absolutely no one like her living today. Sure we have funny women like Joan Rivers who has a potty mouth, and many more whom uses strong language, which shows they are not in the same orbit as Erma Bombeck.
I am sure all the Angels in Heaven are enjoying Erma Bombeck and her unique humor. Just maybe, that is not always thunder we hear during a storm, it could be laughter from Erma entertaining.
02/29/2012 Erma Bombeck I still miss you, and your wonderful humor.
