I sure miss Ann Richards


"She was credited with greatly modernizing the operations of the treasury. Reelected in 1986, she gained national prominence when she delivered the keynote address at the 1988 Democratic National Convention."

BTW, I decided to pull out my autographed book, "Straight from the Heart" Ann Richards with Peter Knobler. I'm reading along, and I see a folded up agenda to "Capital For A Day Town Hall Meeting" in Grayson County, Texas June 30, 1994....on the back I had written in ink, "Senator Mike Moncrief Ft. Worth, TX." It was one of those twilight moments when you think, "Oh how weird that he is now Mayor of the City I am living in!"
