    thanks Scout. I wouldn’t presume to gauge her on a New Orleanian scale, but Ruthie was, it seems to me, quintessentially American. She continued to recreate herself.

    This just breaks my heart. My favorite take:
    “She’s not out of touch with reality; she’s just not interested,” [said] photographer David Richmond…
    The world would be richer with more people like her.

    ruthie was part of the scenery in the old french quarter, and when i was young
    she frightened me. that fur coat, that bridal veil, those roller skates! hey, i liked the ducks.
    find peace, ruthie.
