Obama's grandmother

Barack Obama's grandmother, Madelyn Dunham, died early this morning of cancer. She also suffered from a broken hip after a fall earlier in October.

It took mainstream media about two hours to verify the news, since I noticed bloggers talking about it at 3pm CST but I couldn't find a verifiable, credible source and did not want to report rumor or gossip earlier today. But the terribly sad news IS true.

Last April, USA Today published a nice piece about Madelyn Dunham.
