The Death of "New Texas"

More than a politician, more than a mother, more than a teacher, more than a woman, more than a smart quip, more than her hair, more than a funny story, more than a photo-op, more than a celebrity, more than a Democrat, more than a Texan. She was more than all that, calling us to be more than we thought we were. She was the best part of Texas (and not just from 1991-95).

Rest in peace, Governor Ann Richards (September 1, 1933 - September 13, 2006).

  1. I've been grieving her loss--she has been one of my heroes for a very long time.

    Rest in peace, indeed.
