No shortage of coverage, thank goodness, of the life and death of Betty Ford, former First Lady to Gerald Ford’s president, 1974-1977. Spiro Agnew’s resignation and Richard Nixon’s resignation were seminal political events in my life, very much as Gerald Ford, the pardon of Nixon and Chevy Chases’ Ford-inspired pratfalls were too.
I’m devouring everything that’s being published about Mrs. Ford and I hope I can find this 1987 telepic in which one of my favorite actresses, Gena Rowlands, plays Mrs. Ford and won an Emmy for it. Here’s a few less conventional items you may not have read yet regarding Betty Ford and her contributions to this country and our lives:

CBS Sunday Morning tribute to her, in video, from this morning
Biography from the National First Ladies Library in Canton, Ohio
