The Nut of It

Sarah's picture

There's an advertising jingle that goes, "That's what I like about Texas."
This is a pretty good list!
Molly Ivins,
Ann Richards,
Bill Moyers,
Barbara Jordan,
Lloyd Bentsen,
Jim Hightower,
Dan Rather,
Lady Bird,
Sam Rayburn,
Willie Nelson,
and I'd add a couple names to it:
Waylon Jennings (who was a part of Buddy Holly's band and also a partner with Willie in the early days of outlaw country / Southern rock), and Jim Mattox.
