    I had no idea she was that old. Also had no idea she was on NPR as I knew her from ABC. Sad to hear.

    Very sad indeed. I thoroughly enjoyed This Week With David Brinkley. Must see tv for me every week. It's also a bummer since it was due to complications from breast cancer as my wife is a breast cancer survivor

    I also used to watch This Week with David Brinkley. She was always good and even handed on that show. I believe she was a well respected journalist and reporter. She didn't have to shout out her questions and be a nuisance to get recognition. Just a very good professional. RIP Cokie Roberts.

    I will miss her measured, authoritative and objective analysis. It's too bad that last part seems quaint these days.
