Re:Karen Land on Roadfood passed away.
I finally figured out, based on ScreamingChicken's references to the Fox Valley, that Karen Land was kland01s. I never knew her "real world" name, only her Roadfood voice.
It truly saddens me that she was never able to join in on any of The Contingent's activities. I know she had some serious health issues that limited her mobility, but I wish we could have found a place where she would have reasonable access so we could all get together at least once.
She struck me as a tough but thoughtful character who respected the other poster's opinions but stood fast on her own ground and didn't take any guff.
Karen was one of the good ones. Sympathies and best wishes to her loved ones.
