    Playing amateur psychologist, it's interesting that she was passionate about covering contraceptive rights and she was the eldest of 16 children.

    And I loved the last graf:

    To nearly the end of her life, Ms. Asbury, with her cat’s-eye glasses and demure white bun, was a fixture in the annual satirical show put on by the Inner Circle, a troupe of City Hall reporters in New York. She generally had the honor of delivering the naughtiest line of the night.
