UPDATE: We watched the program and, I must confess, I cried my eyes out. Walter Cronkite does a lovely job narrating the program: his familiar voice conveys the urgency of water conservation in Texas yet encourages us all will be OK. The final moments of the program asserted the inherent value of native plants and their role in water conservation. Truly, we all can do our part...
