Former First Lady Lady Bird Johnson Dies at 94 (Houston Chronicle)

I try to stay on topic here at Withering Fig, but sometimes it’s appropriate, if only for a moment, to consider other things.

[[Wikipedia:Lady Bird Johnson|Lady Bird Johnson]], widow of President Lyndon B. Johnson, died yesterday at the age of 94. I pause to mention her passing for a few reasons. Lady Bird was a great Texan, a great American, and a truly kind person.

I actually had occasion to meet Lady Bird during my days at the University of Texas. She was truly a kind and gracious woman.
