Mario Gallegos's Final Words: "Fuck Vouchers"

You can say whatever you want about State Senator Mario Gallegos -- and there was plenty, good or bad, to say about him -- but the man apparently knew how to make an exit.

As he was on his deathbed, he had one message left for his final words: "Fuck vouchers."

Policy Man!!

The "fuck vouchers" quote seems, as far as we can tell, to come from behind a paywall site, but in these Internet days it's difficult to say who got it first. We'll be glad to credit whoever did, but we first saw it as a Texas Weekly quote of the week.

Gallegos's last words may not be up there with Oscar Wilde's alleged "Either these curtains go, or I do," but then again the senator was in Methodist Hospital, where the curtains are just perfectly acceptable.
