Change for better?

All the media coverage about President Kennedy’s visit to Fort Worth and untimely death in Dallas 50 years ago brings to mind how much Texas politics has changed since then.

Lyndon Johnson had run for office as a conservative (Ralph Yarborough was the leader of the liberal wing of the Democratic Party), and things like abortion, homosexuality and Republicans were not mentioned in polite company.
