In Memoriam

Molly Ivins died today. These are the first two books of hers that I bought & read, several years ago now. I was an instant fan, not just for her sense of humor, which was incredible, but most especially for her overwhelming sense of basic decency - the idea that we should each be good to our fellow humans. That and the radical idea that this nation belongs to and should be run by and for "We the People".

Her last article is here, and a tribute to her is here.

I was so sad to hear that she had died. She was young, too -- and desperately needed in this crazy-ass world we find ourselves in.
