Cathy Seipp gravely ill at Cedars

cathy_seipp.jpgCathy Seipp’s fight against cancer, which she has courageously shared on her blog for many months, has apparently become a losing battle, according to this post by her daughter, Maia:

The doctor says that right now they’re just making her comfortable. She’s sedated, with painkillers among other things. Lungs collapsed so right now we just want to make sure she has dignity and is not in pain. The doctor says she has a couple days left.

Whether you snickered at her wicked “Margo Magee” dissections of the L.A. Times in the former Buzz magazine, or you raged at (or with) her conservative columns in The National Review, you could always be damned sure of one thing with Cathy: You were in the presence of an uncompromising and talented writer who put her heart and brain behind her work every step of the way.

Let’s hope the rest of her journey is as smooth as such things can be.
