An astonishing story, then even more astonishing comments about it.

What an amazing bit of history, what a feeling it must have been for her.

For the dark side, read the comments section beneath the story and see the hatred that lurks deep in the heart of Texas.

And this was in a newspaper published in Austin, the most liberal city in the state.
