I know this is rather tardy, but I just read Skip Hollandsworth’s story about Angie in this month’s Texas Monthly. Two observations: 1) Skip presents an articulate, clever, devil-may-care, more-blue-collar-than-blue-blood-Nan Kempner-like lady. So either Angie showed Skip a very, very, very secret side of herself OR Skip sees something that no one else does. Either way, she owes Skip thanks. 2) Reid Slaughter is quoted in the article and he’s AWESOME. He says, “I didn’t dislike Angie Barrett. I disliked the concept of Angie Barrett, the idea that someone with no discernable talents could hype herself by throwing parties or by showing up at a bunch of parties or by writing checks to charities from her older husband’s vat of wealth that she had no hand in creating.”
I’m off to find Reid so we can trash some co-workers.
