Farewell Ann Richards

One of my political sheros died. She was one hellva gal. Go see Echidne for a list of her "firsts."

She is survived by her daughter, Cecile Richards, who is the President of Planned Parenthood. You can send condolences to Ms. Richards at

I have to say its hard to see so many of the 2nd Wave pioneers go. I hope it serves as a reminder to all of us, who are beneficiaries of their work, that we need to keep pressing forward in our struggle to abolish racism and sexism.
