Davidson, a white middle-aged state trooper's wife, has spent the past 20 years raising her two children in this tiny Texas town where country music rules the airwaves and John Wayne's portrait hangs on the wall of the local cafe.

Chuck Philips does an admirable job in his article portraying the anguish of Linda Sue Davidson at the death of her police officer husband ("Testing the Limits," Calendar, Oct. 13).
