Cathy Seipp, RIP

Freelance writer and longtime blogger Cathy Seipp died yesterday after a 5-year-long bout with lung cancer. She was only 49. And, no, like a lot of people who die from lung cancer, she never smoked cigarettes.

Her daughter, Maia, Susan Estrich, John O’Sullivan, Virginia Postrel, Matt Welch, Joanne Jacobs, Marc Danziger, Amy Alkon, Jim Treacher, Justin Levine, Ken Layne, Michelle Malkin, AllahPundit, Jeremy Reff, Eric Scheie and Moxie have tributes. Many more here and here.

The LAT, of which she was a frequent critic, has a nice obit.
