Author of ‘The Cat Who’ series dies at 97
Lilian Jackson Braun, who died last week in South Carolina, took an 18-year hiatus between "The Cat Who Turned On and Off" and "The Cat Who Saw Red," published in 1986.
The author who wrote 29 books in the "The Cat Who ..." mystery series almost quit writing after the third book was published because popular tastes had changed so much, but a casual conversation convinced her to try again.

Gov. Perry adds immigration issues to session
Gov. Rick Perry added immigration legislation to the special session's agenda on Tuesday, including a measure that would remove local law enforcement agencies' ability to make immigration violations a lower priority.
Other items he added include how local police use the federal Secure Communities program to check people's immigration status when they are arrested, and checking an applicant's immigration status before issuing driver's licenses and personal iden-tification certificates, according to a statement from Perry.
The governor had named similar items as emergency legislation in the regular session, but the bills tailed to reach the full Senate for a vote.
Opponents say the measures will lead to racial profiling and harassment.
Democrats oppose all the measures and successfully used parliamentary procedure to stymie them until after the deadline passed for passage during the regular session. In a special session, there are fewer opportunities to slow a bill clown. Republicans have a 101 -49 supermajority in the House and a 19-12 majority in the Senate, making it easy for them to pass the measures.
Proponents call places where police do not actively enforce federal immigration law "sanctuary cities," a moniker local officials reject.
"Texas owes it to the brave law enforcement officials, who put their lives on the line every day to protect our families and communities, to give them the discretion they need to adequately do their jobs," Perry said. "Abolishing sanctuary cities in Texas, using the federal Secure Communities program and ensuring that only individuals who are here legally can obtain a valid Texas driver's license sends a clear message that Texas will not turn a blind eye to those breaking our laws."
The bill would forbid policymakers from telling officers not to give immigration matters the same priority as other crimes. The bill would allow a police officer to ask about someone's immigration status whenever they are being questioned about any kind of violation.
