Remembering Granny D

We were dismayed to learn of last month's passing of the eminent political activist Granny D. Doris Haddock was a tireless advocate for political causes, focusing in her later life on campaign finance reform. And she literally walked it like she talked it, giving speeches and raising awareness during a 3200-mile, 14-month walking tour across America. She even entered a Senatorial race against then-incumbent New Hampshire senator Judd Gregg (who was kind of a jerk during the recent health care reform debates).

Granny D's run for the Senate, and her tireless spirit, are captured and celebrated in the bracing documentary Run Granny Run, available to our US/Canadian viewers right here on Jaman.
