I wanted to take this chance to note the recent passing of Edna Dolan, whose daughters were hosts of both the Satellite Sisters and Chaos Chronicles podcasts.
In both their podcasts and blogs, the Dolan girls have been eloquent about living in the so-called "Panini Generation," feeling the squeeze of simultaneously raising children and caring for their aging parents. Their father had been the main focus of their attention for years, as his health slowly declined. But their mother's sickness came on quickly, and her death seemed (to this outsider) to come totally out of the blue.
My condolences go out to Julie, Liz, Monica, Sheila, and Lian, and the rest of their family.
