Former Texas Governor Ann Richards is dead

It's a sad story. By today's standards, she was fairly young -- only 73. But cancer has its way of taking even the orneriest, most stubborn, best, and brightest. It does not discriminate. It surely takes down those who abused themselves with drugs and alcohol and hard living.

Ann surely abused alcohol and I think she led a difficult life. Who didn't who grew up during the Great Depression?

Ann Richards died today after a 6-month battle with cancer. May she rest in peace.
