Corazon Aquino dies at 76; restored democracy to the Philippines

Yet another important historical figure passes away.

I have vivid memories of the coup that ousted Ferdinand Marcos, and how Aquino's presidency was seen as revenge, of sorts, for her husband's assassination. Marcos subsequent exile in the United States never made much sense to me.
