Molly Ivins, stand-up broad

Too soon, too soon

I'm going to miss Molly Ivins, a long-time sure-fire antidote for the lame pap that usually graces the opinion pages of our nation's newspapers. She tried to warn us about her state's lackwit governor, but the nation went and let him become president anyway. If anyone deserved to live long enough to see the final crash-and-burn end of the Bush administration, it was Molly. Her early death is just one more piece of evidence that we live in an unjust universe. Them's the breaks, damn it.

Since Molly won't be here to help us, let us all—great and small—redouble our efforts as volunteers in the Shrub-pruning brigade!

Good tribute, Zeno. I'm gonna miss Molly too. She was one of Texas's gifts to this country (in contrast to The Shrub)...
