3. I didn't.

Being Ann Richards' daughter is another reason for the Repubs to vilify Planned Parenthood. Anne scared the pants off those fools.

5. I'm glad I wasn't the only one!

I think I'll cross-post this in GD. Being a big fan of both of these lovely ladies, I got a big kick from it!

7. I knew this

She was also the founder of Texas Freedom Network - the group that fights against the religious craziness in Texas. You know the textbook fights and the State Board of Education (or dumbification).

8. Ah!

Both outstanding women! Ann faced very hard battles during her time, but I think Cecile's (Planned Parenthood) battles are epic considering what's going on right now.

12. She had a great Mama as a role model

One of her brothers, Clark Richards, is very active too. He lives close to my neighborhood and was a big Obama supporter. Good man. The whole family was always involved with some kind of community activity their whole lives. They leaned young to care about the whole world. We're in it together.

I think Ann would be very proud of Cecile right now. I know her brother Clark is.
