Elizabeth Taylor died this morning due to complications with congestive heart failure. The iconic, glamorous star was an outstanding actress and activist, being described by Gene Seymour for CNN.com as, the "Last Star."

Well, I was only 3 then, and she was 12, but I've always followed her illnesses and romantic adventures with interest. And I always thought she was intelligent (if not in her choice of husbands), honest and selflessly dedicated to the cause of eradicating AIDs.
