It's Barbara Jordan's Birthday
Today would have been the 76th birthday of a trailblazing Houstonian in Rep. Barbara Charline Jordan. I wrote about my shero on the occasion of her 75th birthday last year.
When it comes to my politicians and the prototype person I'm looking to vote for, she is the template for it and I sincerely believe that this country would be in much better shape if we had more Barbara Jordans in Congress.
