    I think often of my grandmother, who was born in 1901 and was raised in a huge family in the desolate ranch lands of Texas. Somehow got herself a college education and helped found planned parenthood chapters in that state with Margaret Sanger. I feel the anger and shock she would no doubt express at the stupidity and vile misogyny rising back up today.  She'd tell us to fight back in her Texan drawl with eyes of steel.
