Dorothy Eck, Montana State Senator and co-author of the 1972 Montana Constitution, passed away this month.

She was one of the “Political People” who talked politics with us for this 1992 NPR All Things Considered story. Hear her @1:55 (“I don’t look at party platforms, they’re mostly baloney.”) and at @4:55 (“Who said democracy is easy?”):
