Shy and admittedly awkward, Janet Reno became a blunt prosecutor and the first woman to serve as U.S. attorney general and was also the epicenter of a relentless series of political storms, from the deadly raid on the Branch Davidian compound at Waco, Texas, to the seizure of 5-year-old Cuban immigrant Elian Gonzalez.
Reno, 78, died early Monday of complications from Parkinson's disease, her goddaughter Gabrielle D'Alemberte told The Associated Press. D'Alemberte said Reno spent her final days at home in Miami surrounded by family and friends.

One of my favorite lunatic artists - the tractman himself, Jack Chick - has shuffled off this mortal coil. While I didn't have much to agree with on his ideology, I greatly respected his artistry and passion for getting his particular brand of fire and brimstone out to the unlearned masses. I'll shed a tear next time I see a Lisa's Father on the back of a toilet in a bus station. RIP, you talented zealot.
