Seventy-five years ago (that's 75, folks), a legend was born. The woman who terrorizes Democrats in the Greater Tri-State Area, the Scourge of the Editorial Page, my mother. Mom has been writing letters to the editor of the Amarillo Globe-News for longer than I've had a blog. And she has quite the following. We regularly get the, "Are you THE MARY CHUMBLEY???" question every time she uses her credit cards, signs her name, or flashes her driver's license. Legend has it, she gave a State Trooper an autograph, and she wasn't even speeding.
She has her own fan club, and not all of them are seniors. When we're out together, I'm not Angel, The Lonely Libertarian. I'm Mary Chumbley's daughter, and damned proud of it.
Happy birthday, Mom! Thank you for raising me to be a strong, opinionated redhead. I love you!
