Janet Jagan, 1920-2009. R.I.P.

Janet Jagan, the former President of Guyana, died today due to an abdominal aneurysm. She was 88.

In 1997, Jagan became the first woman elected President in a Latin American country.

Her Marxist politics aside, if you are born Janet Rosenberg in Chicago in 1920 and end up being elected President of a South American country you have lived an interesting life.
