"Africa is, indeed, coming into fashion." - Horace Walpole (1774)


sad day

I can't think of any better ways to remember Ann Richards on the day of her funeral. Enjoy:

Thanks for the rememberances and laughs. I did not agree with most of her political views, but she was still one of my favorite politicians. Her speeches were always interesting to say the very least. I wish every American had her backbone to stand for what they believe is right and the wisdom to express their thoughts so interestingly well. The US, Texas, her friends and her family have lost a 'good'un'.

Amen to that. I think what's so frustrating for most Americans is that the vast majority of politicians won't say what they actually think about anything - they're too worried about polls and getting re-elected. You never had to wonder what Ann Richards thought, and that's why so many people respected her, even when they disagreed with her political views. We have indeed lost a good'un.
