Fare Thee Well, Tammy Faye

Tammy Faye Baker Messner reportedly passed away on Friday.

I never considered her the bad half of the Jim & Tammy Faye duo when my mom watched the PTL Club in the early 1980s. I think she lived long enough to come into her own. In the mid 1980s she was one of the first "professed" Christians to have the guts to embrace people suffering with AIDs. I shall forever remember her as having poor up-close eyesight because really, what could explain that maquillage?

Fare thee well Tammy Faye, I hope there is a giant Shiseido counter in the sky for you.
