It is with great sadness that I announce the death of Legal Insurrection reader Patricia McNaughton of Fremont, Wisconsin. Patricia passed away peacefully in the evening of April 29, 2019, surrounded by her sister and family.

Herb Kelleher, the former Chairman, CEO, and co-founder of Southwest Airlines passed away last week. His grit, humor, and authenticity revolutionized air travel and created a corporate culture, one big family, really, to be envied.
