I grew up in Texas and my family was involved in politics (kind of…), having an opportunity to meet/talk with Ann Richards on more than one occasion. She was an amazing woman….
But I just saw her at the beginning of the year while I was traveling in India. We were both in Delhi for the “Beat the Retreat” parade/celebration (sorry, no pictures, cameras weren’t allowed due to the dignitaries and their security). She looked healthy enough, not that white paste look that you get when you are really ill…. Sorry to hear of her passing.
