Andrea Dworkin (1946 – 2005)

by Marie

She made us think. A rare and under-appreciated quality in a world where agreement and consensus are more highly valued. I want to go wherever Andrea has now gone when my time comes. For one reason it will be less crowded than the heaven most Americans hope to enter. But mostly because it will be more interesting. Eternity is a long time and heaven with GWB for me would only make me wonder how much worse hell could be.

Thank you for being Andrea.
