Ann Richards

If you go away and are without access to the news, somebody always dies. This time it was former Texas governorAnn Richards- I saw a posting that Nashville Blogger Sharon Cobb had done Molly Ivins remembering Ann Richards. I interned in Houston one summer and Ann was governor then. I was so impressed with her forthright manner and her no-nonsense way of taking unruly legislators in hand to get the job of governing done. I'm sorry she's gone. She was a political hero of mine.
