Lady Bird Johnson

Lady Bird Johnson and I shared two things: a journalism degree from the University of Texas, where I had the privilege of introducing her at Commencement, and wildflowers. They line the sides of tens of thousands of miles of highways, and are the result of her love of wildflowers and lifelong work to pass the Highway Beautification Act (visit to see the Lady Bird Wildflower Center at UT. She was a lovely lady whose grace and love of nature and beauty will be missed.
