Just a few weeks ago I visited San Francisco which led me to tell some friends about my favorite memory of Marcia. Although it may not sound like it, I swear that this actually is a fond memory.
When I was on the Executive Committee of Brit Tzedek, I had cause to visit the Bay Area near where Marcia was living. Although she and I had our policy differences, I thought it would be good for us to get together. So I emailed her asking if she wanted to get coffee. Her reply was only a few words long, something to the effect of “Oh, let’s not.” Very Marcia. She was never one to mince her words.
