- Rob Schneider talks about Carson's life as a "warrior for the city". "Her weapons of choice are blunt talk and a dollop of charm," the Congressional Quarterly's Politics in America once said of her.
- Will Higgins writes about how Carson always remained true to her roots. "Carson grew up modestly and never strayed from her roots. She could have moved to a better neighborhood but never did. She stayed in her house at 25th Street and Park Avenue. She could have arranged to have her phone number unlisted but never did. She's still in the book."
- Mary Beth Schneider shares the thoughts of her friends and colleagues here. "I loved her, and she loved me," Andy Jacobs said, his voice cracking. "She was my sister."
- Matt Tully talks about the bond between Carson and her supporters here. "In this hard-boiled world of politics, the bond between Carson and her many supporters was stronger than anything else most of us who document politics for a living have ever seen.
Any commentator fool enough to criticize Carson in print was destined to spend hours fielding calls from angry, passionate and, most of all, loyal Carson supporters.
Believe me, I know."
- And Brendan O'Shaughnessy talks about the race to succeed Carson here.
Funeral arrangements are tentative at this point. Carson's body is expected to lie in state at the State House rotunda on Friday. Her funeral is tentatively planned for Saturday. The location has not been announced yet, but it is anticipated there will be quite a few high-profile public officials who will come in town for the services.
