text from little sister: the next time you see mom please have her tell you the story of how she went down to the tea party rally today in downtown phoenix. dropped off. by herself. then walked 16 blocks down jefferson to ride the lightrail home. you'll die.
she had my father drop her off on a whim when they happened to drive by the rally.
and apparently she made friends all along the way with people most of us would veer away from.
none of this surprises me about my mother. she's got heart.
and is about as good a person as they come.
