R.I.P. Helen Thomas

Longtime trailblazing journalist Helen Thomas has passed away at the age of 92.  Covering every President since JFK, Thomas represented United Press International for 39 years, and was the mentor for many of today's well-known female journalists.  Her heated remarks about Israel two years ago effectively ended Thomas's (a Lebanese-American) long career.  RIP to an American treasure.
