Sad news

The Cleveland Plain Dealer is reporting that Rep. Stephanie Tubbs Jones, the first black woman elected to the House from Ohio, died Wednesday afternoon in a Cleveland hospital.

Tubbs Jones was hospitalized Tuesday night after police pulled over her car and found her unconscious behind the wheel.
