A Woman of Achievement

We get home delivery of two newspapers: “The New York Times” and the “The Bergen Record.” I’m always annoyed at the paucity of women’s obituaries. Today, however, Linda and I were incredulous that the death of Dorothy Warburton, “Pioneering geneticist Dorothy Warburton dies” was covered in “The Record” but not in NYT. Most likely the Record’s interest was sparked by the fact that she lived in Englewood, NJ, and that her son works for “The Record.” But, still! what does it take for the NYT to cover the death of a woman of accomplishment!?! http://www.northjersey.com/obituaries/top-obituaries/pioneering-geneticist-dorothy-warburton-dies-1.1558359
