I was walking down 44th Street one night in the early 90s with a friend, when he stopped in his tracks and screamed, “Oh My God,” (we didn’t say OMG in the 90s), “That’s Ann Richards!” Before I could say “Who?”, he bolted down the street and weaseled his way in between her security guards to get a handshake and a sweet Texas hello.
I went home in tried to google her, but Google hadn’t been invented yet, so I asked around and quickly learned how strong of a politician, a public figure, and a woman she was.
So strong and so unique, that they could have written a play about her.
And eventually they did!
And one of you is about to win free tickets!
Well, let’s see . . . Fiorello was just up at Encores. Ann is on Broadway .
Bloomberg? Clinton? Blagojevich?
