Late to the Party RIP Nora Ephron

Why do I always find out how remarkable someone is AFTER they die? I always thought Nora Ephron while creating a couple of great movies, was to be openly derided for creating this klutzy schmaltzy romantic comedy genre.  Little did I know, she was actually a feminist, comedian, atheist, reporter, the only white house intern not to schtup Kennedy and all round awesome person.  I’m off to read her books, you should too. If you have already, WHY DIDN’T YOU TELL ME SOONER?
