  • I am very sad to hear that Sue Olive has died. I knew her well when she was an Urban Ecology activist in Berkeley, back when she was still called Sue Stropes. Until recently, I would meet her on BART occasionally, while she was commuting to Parsons-Brinkerhoff. It is a great loss, and I wish I could express my feelings about it more eloquently.
