Former Texas Governor, Activist Ann Richards, 73 – washingtonpost.com: “Former Texas governor Ann Richards, the witty and flamboyant Democrat who went from homemaker to national political celebrity, died Sept. 13 after cancer was diagnosed this year, a family spokeswoman said. She was 73.”
She was a breath of fresh air in Texas Politics. She was also the first victim of the Rove way of running campaigns in the rise of George W Bush. She was missed then…she will be missed now. Thank You Governor.
