Bombeck was the favorite humorous essayist of both my mother and my aunt (Bombeck died in 1996).

I wouldn't think of badmouthing the woman. She was a brilliant humorist, and had the storytelling gift in full measure. If I personally always preferred Jean Kerr (who, like me, was definitely NOT a 'morning person'), I'm not blind to Bombeck's often wicked invective, tempered by a not quite unfailing compassion.

I can see why my aunt and my mother like her--their own storytelling styles are often similar.
