Professor B and Jenny have both written posts mourning the death of fiesty Texas politician, Ann Richards, who passed away a few days ago. Like Jenny, I admired Richards’ “take-no-crap, hard talkin'” approach to politics, but I’d also like to add that Richards’ speech at the 1988 Democratic National Convention is one of the reasons I took a political left turn at an important moment in my life. An audio file and transcript of the speech are available online at the American Rhetoric website, and looking through the transcript quickly, it’s an even more amazing speech than I remembered.
