    She was a Houston icon. I'll post more later using the laptop.

    A good friend of mine was working for Reading is Fundamental (RIF) in the late 80s and early 90s and I recall going to a RIF reception and Barbara Bush showed with no fanfare, schmoozed with everyone and it was clear how passionate she was about literacy.

    The kind of tough yet loving mother or grandmother everyone wishes they had.

    I would've voted for her as POTUS.

    Who could forget her comments about the Superdome being an upgrade for the displaced people of New Orleans, or her casual disregard of the lives claimed by the invasion of Iraq by her war criminal son? What a wonderful person, indeed.

    No disputing this but it is also important to judge her on actions and not just words.

    As far as first ladies, her establishment of the Barbara Bush Foundation for Family Literacy was significant and, nearly 30 years later, is still a leading advocate and source of financial support to promote pre-school learning /early childhood education and adult literacy, particularly focusing on minorities communities.

    She wasn't perfect; no one is.

    Weigh her mistakes against her accomplishments.
