Let me see if I can ease your pain a little.

To be fair to NBC (boy does this hurt) couldn't her absence be explained by the fact that she was a contributor on a competitor?

I have seen, repeatedly on FOX News, a reminder of those who lost their lives in this past year. Barbara Olson has been shown every time. She was a contibutor on a competitive station for them also. They showed her anyway.

What visual obituary is the writer referring to? Only thing I've seen has been on a program about celebs and they didn't even include Jack Lemon. Do you know which programs specifically included and excluded Ms. Olson?

Thirdly, the endowment was established with the approval of her family and by her friends as a way to honor Barbara at the school through which she entered her chosen profession, the law. Lastly, I am encouraged that we who donate to this fund are part of creating a living legacy and are supporting students who will go on to be the EXACT kind of lawyer that Barbara and Ted Olson have been.

Here is another reason to be encouraged -- the same friends and family who are responsible for setting up the scholarship fund will have the final say as to its recipients. After that, their children (or personally designated spokespersons). Then their children, etc, etc, etc.

The scholarship is in safe hands.

God bless.

Your Right!

I just finished "Hell To Pay"

great book. And my wife just bought me " The Final Days". Can't wait to read it! If the money from the books is going to Ted, I can't think of a better person to give it to!

BARBARA OLSON, CONSERVATIVE HERO IN BATTLE AGAINST ISLAMIC TERROR AND CLINTON CRIMES, IGNORED ON NBC

Not only is she the most prominent, but she is also the wife of one of the top U.S. government officials, the attorney who represented candidate George Bush in the contested Florida election before the Supreme Court, and above all a stalwart, perfectly relentless fighter against the corruption of the government by the Clinton's, who left her husband at home on the day of the fateful flight to once again do battle in an out-of-town television interview on ABC's Politically Incorrect show, presumably in order to advance the thesis of her about to be released book, The Final Days (how ironic the name), which was the follow-up to her first Clinton book, Hell to Pay (more irony since there has been a lot of hell to pay from the Clinton treacheries--and it will not only be the Islamic maniacs, who were enabled to do what they did on September 11, 2001 by the Clinton perfidies, who will someday have hell to pay). Whatever one's politics, one has to acknowledge that hers is arguably the most significant death of the year, what with her dying directly at the hands of the terrorists and indirectly at the hands of the Clintons.


Good post. . .

Barbara was and remains, through her writings and through those of us who loved and so appreciated her, a person of consequence in her own right and should be mentioned as such in a "prominent American" lost life retrospective.

I do not disagree.....but I do not expect the mainstream to give her much life and tragic death much airtime. She is the antithesis of the junior senator from New York. The queen (of NY) would not be amused.

Barbara Olson's death is still painful for me. I did not know her, but man-o-man I respected her. I watched the Larry King Tribute to her....many boo-hoo's at the end.

I wouldn't sweat it. You didn't actually expect these liberal shills to remember a conservative icon that almost helped pull down their favorite anti-constitution president, did you?

On the other hand, they'll d@mn near have an aneurism over the prospect of Hillary being in danger when one of her body guards is run over. Everybody remember the headline the NYT ran? They didn't give a d@mn about the person actually hit by the vehicle. They only cared about Her Witchness.

The RNC should have Fox News devote a special show just to her memory.

The RNC has no control over what FoxNews broadcasts. I'm sure your little post confirms in the mind of any lurking liberal that FoxNews, is in fact, an organ/extension of the Republican Party. Nice going, Einstein.

Of course Fox has a lot of liberals. The only reason that some call it a CONSERVATIVE station is that it has ANY conservative views at all.The other networks are totally lib.

I never heard of Couric's sister till Fox did their obituary list. When her name came up I had wondered if the 2 were related. They certainly resembled each other.

I'll go along with BKO's death by terrorists being the most significant. She is a substantial loss to all of us here, and to all conservative Americans. I pray for her soul and for her husband. He's a hero too.

I am thinking the RATS are shortening the leash on the news. GW is gaining in popularity by the minute. Why broadcast about BKO and give publicity to an "enemy" of the clintons?? That is the only reason I can think of. She was one of the few people who was not afraid to take them on.

Barbara Olson bump. She was always one of my favorites. The people at NBC are, by and large, liberal idiots.

Am I the only one to have noticed the shift of fox news,from pre 9/11 anti government propaganda to post 9/11 Pro government propaganda? What were the chances that a plain she was on be hijacked? Isent her husband a contributer to fox? I dont trust todays politics,to many connections to political org's.ie the CFR etc.

Wow!

Ted's speech was phenomenol. It's not difficult to imagine that he does hold your attention once he's talking.

Thanks for the link!
