It was announced today that 89 year old reporter Helen Thomas was retiring.
You've probably seen her during Presidential press conferences, since she has been a White House correspondent for many years.
The thing that precipitated her (forced) retirement were her comments after the recent incident with the "flotilla" that Israel should get out of Palestine, and that the Jews should leave Israel and go to Germany or the United States.
Good riddance, Helen!
