    We all remember Henry B.

    In fact, my husband is good friends with Henry B. Gonzales, Jr.

    And of course the other son, Charlie now represents Sr.'s old district TX-20.

    You say your connected to this legendary family?  Your grandfather was Henry B. Sr.'s cousin---is that right? Or was it your grandfather's uncle that was first cousins with Henry. I can't figure it out from the writing in the diary.

    If my hubby asked his friend, Henry B. Jr., would he know who you are?  Or is the connection too loose and too long ago?

    It's like, duh. Just when you thought there wasn't a dime's worth of difference between the two parties, the Republicans go and prove you're wrong.~Molly Ivins

      Henry B's first cousin. And yes, Charlie knows who I am, as does Henry B. Jr. We all had a huge family reunion back in 1999 or 2000.

      I work with B2B PAC, and all views and opinions in this account are my own.

        I couldn't figure out if it was your grandfather or your grandfather's uncle who was the first cousin.

        So you know the brothers?  Cool. I like that they both carry on Sr.s strong progressive beliefs. We just know Henry personally and Charlie through Henry.  Charlie is a straight up good guy and Henry is a character--he's a crack up.  He's funny and can be a bit lewd.  And if you think we can insult republicans on DKos, you should have heard some of the things Henry was saying about them during the health care debate!

        Nice work.  You have a big legacy to carry on.  Keep up the good work.
