Sod Off Wednesday: Sally Ride RIP

Sally Ride died the other day. She was only 61. Pancreatic cancer can sod off.

She was the ground commander for STS-2 and STS-3 (second and third Space Shuttle launches).
She became the first American woman in space on STS-7.
She was on the committee that investigated the Challenger explosion.
She wrote five children's books about space.
She was a significant enough figure to earn a mention in the song "We Didn't Start the Fire".

Also, a special sod off to the prick reporter who asked her "Do you weep when things go wrong on the job?"
