Ran downstairs to stand on a muggy, overcast downtown street at noon today. I wanted to hear the bells as they began to toll for the late Governor Ann Richards. As the peals grew louder, I could have wept. God, she was fabulous. What a dynamic life she lived. She was and is a beacon of how powerful women can be. How dedicated politicians can fight the good fight. Adios, you ass-kicking, no bullshit beauty.

And in a celebratory non-sequitur, tomorrow is International Talk Like a Pirate Day. All you sharp-tongued, salty scum out there say
arghhh. If you need help, watch this.
