Molly Ivins

With everything that is happening in the country this year I can’t help but think of Molly Ivins. She would be having the time of her life watching and commenting on the election.  Unfortunately we lost Ms. Ivins to breast cancer on January 3, 2007.  She finally succumbed to breast cancer the third time it attacked.

Molly’s final column was run shortly before her death.  I like to think she’s been watching lately and been enjoying it.

We are the people who run this country. We are the deciders. And every single day, every single one of us needs to step outside and take some action to help stop this war. Raise hell. Think of something to make the ridiculous look ridiculous. Make our troops know we’re for them and trying to get them out of there.

  1. Thanks for remembering the great Molly (perhaps we should call her the Unsinkable Molly Ivins?). Her commentary always made me proud to be able to live in this great country of ours and humble also that we enjoyed so many freedoms (sometimes taking them for granted).

    I still miss her…
