Ann Richards, the flamboyant Texan, loyal Democrat, keen politician and all around good lady died Sept. 13 after a battle with esophageal cancer.

Having grown up in Texas I’ll always remember Richards as “The Governor.” But in the photo community, Richards will be remembered for an unfortunate Texas Monthly cover in which her head was spliced onto the body of a model striding a Harley-Davidson motorcycle.
