rexblog flashback: From March 11, highlights of my first day of this year’s SxSW Interactive in Austin:

“Lunch with Summer Huggins at the Las Manitas Ave. Cafe (which is on Congress Ave.) where we saw Ann Richards. That was a highlight because I’d just read she was battling cancer and, frankly, she looked upbeat and perky and quite healthy.

Summer IM’d me from Austin this morning to recall the “sighting” of Gov. Richards and we shared that after seeing her that day, we didn’t think her death would come quite so soon. “Rest in Peace” is what I would typically say to end a post like this, but from her always apparent sense of fun and irreverence, I think Ann Richards might wish rather to “Rest in Feistiness.” She will be missed.
