I read an article in the New York Times today that ended like this:
Ms. Bhutto kept up her networking until the very end. Last week, Mr. Siegel said, he e-mailed Ms. Bhutto to tell her he had heard that their publisher, HarperCollins, was pleased with the book the two had just turned in, “Reconciliation: Islam, Democracy and the West.” He received a happy response from Ms. Bhutto by BlackBerry. “Which we called her ‘crackberry’ because she was so addicted to it,” Mr. Siegel said.Read the entire article here.
The time was 2 a.m. Thursday, noon in Rawalpindi. Six hours later, Ms. Bhutto was dead.
As always, her last e-mail message to Mr. Siegel had been an almost instantaneous response. “She would answer me within 15 minutes, even at crazy times,” Mr. Siegel said. “I said, ‘Why are you up?’ And she would say, ‘I’m working.’ ”
