Ann Richards Dies

Today Ann Richards Died. I don't care what you think about her politics but she was one hell of a lady. She loved to fish, especially down here on South Padre Island. Anyone who can say "that dog won't hunt" is cool, although one of her best was "you can put lipstick on a pig, but it's still a pig." She fought the good ole boy system up in Austin, tore them up, and got more state hiring for women and minorities.

She was 73 years old. We'll miss ya, Guv.

I heard it was cancer, not sure what kind. Sure makes you think! My mother died from breast cancer at 63, her mother at 65. Brenda's 52 and has less than 5% chance of reoccurance in 10 years, research on new stuff not in for 20 years. We needs to get our arses' retired soon! On the flip side men in my family nere die!
