Ann Richards 

Via E-air. Ann Richards has been diagnosed with cancer. This is really sad news to me.

I have a lot of respect for that woman. She is the embodiment of the best Texas has to offer. Unembellished, even gruff individualism made palatable by undeniable empathy and wisdom.

She was the speaker at my better half's graduation ceremony in December and she's still got it. Hopefully she won't lose her voice over this, that would be a tragedy because it's a voice that still needs to be heard.
