Take any neighborhood in Austin, and you can probably find the sweet green fingerprints of activist Mary Arnold on it. Where Austin is human-sized and lovely in a homegrown way, Arnold has likely researched, written, and testified mightily for it to be that way. At age 72, she is our living treasure of civic justice. Thank you, Mary, for reminding us of the good things we're capable of.
