Saw this thread popped up. Made me sad all over again.
Barb was a great friend and a beautiful person...no way a person can avoid being sad thinking about her untimely death. Huge loss for ISU and for so many people.
Okay, I get the December bump, but why out of the blue today?
Gossamer has been mining old threads for gold...
she pops up on my Facebook feed on occasion...thought I'd search to see if she made this forum. ****, half this forum is drivel...I'll talk about Barbara any day.
Barbara Mack was one of the most influential professors I had at Iowa State. We didn't agree on everything, but what she liked about me is I had a brain and I used it to think for myself instead of being a sheep that parroted everything that I was told. I kept in touch with her and sought advice from her even after I graduated, which wasn't easy as I was living 200 miles away, but her advice was crucial when after I went on a job interview in Chicago thinking it was for an advertising gig, but instead ended up being a clear Ponzi scheme. She encouraged me that I did the right thing when I walked away, and asked for their info to see what she could do legally against them. I never heard back what ever happened, but that wasn't the point - I had her respect, even after graduation.
