RIP Ann Richards 

What a sad way to come back from dinner. Apparently, Ann Richards has died of cancer.

I've blogged about my love for her before. This is truly a sad day. Texas has lost one of its most beloved daughters. Though she never knew it, Richards inspired me on several occasions and was one of the people who first got me interested in politics. She was a great woman, and will be sorely missed.

Incidentally, she also shares both first and middle names with my mother, and like my mother chose to go by her middle name...who knew?
