I'm sitting here drinking a Diet Coke and wishing I had a cigarette to smoke in tribute to Leslie Harpold. I was shocked to read the news this morning...and honestly I kinda feel like I was the last to know about it. I should've been paying more attention.
She was a brilliant writer and all I can say is it just sucks that she's gone.

She seems like a very well loved and respected person who would not have wanted a bunch of people mourning her, but rather for those who are sad to look around and appreciate life and just BE HAPPY.
Cheers Leslie, you will be sorely missed.
Here are some articles from The Morning News written by her:
