Goodbye, Toot.

Barack Obama's grandmother, Madelyn Dunham, died of cancer today in Hawaii--where she once raised the man who is on the threshold of well, the Promised Land, (as all signs point to him winning the Presidency of the United States of America on Election Day). "Toot" (from "grandmother" in an African language) was 86. She was a World War II bomber assembly line worker and died at their "family estate" -- a fifty square foot apartment she has rented for decades in central Honolulu. Goodbye, Toot!
