Michelle Malkin sent me an distressing e-mail today. Our mutual friend Phyllis Schlafly is in the hospital. Michelle and I met each other for the first time at the Sonoma County Eagle Forum where Phyllis was being honored, as well as myself and Michelle.
"Everyone - Grand dame of grass-roots conservatism Phyllis Schlafly broke her hip after a UC Berkeley lecture on Tuesday and had surgery Wednesday. This amazing woman is 85 years old and still as active as ever on the speaking circuit. Just a few days before, she was in Texas rallying grass-roots GOP for a Lincoln Day Dinner event. She will miss CPAC on Saturday, where she was scheduled to receive lifetime achievement award from Clare Booth Luce Policy Institute.
Keep her and her family in your prayers!"
