Breaking News: Elizabeth Taylor Dies At 79
Elizabeth Taylor has died after extended treatment for congestive heart failure. The actress, one of the last surviving from the Hollywood glam days, was well known for many scandals and her legendary wit, but will perhaps be best remembered for her AIDS contributions and campaign for safe sex at a time when it was not trendy to do so. Taylor was never afraid to be controversial, whether it was one of her many marriages or her stance for gay rights, again when it was not trendy to be supportive. She had been suffering for the last few years, and had been in pain for a long time. When those violet eyes closed forever an era passed with her, but she has earned her rest and her place in history.
