Mourning Molly

The brave, witty, riotous, irreverent Molly Ivins has died at the age of 62 of breast cancer. She was a rare journalist, always seeking the truth, a champion of the People, a patriot, and laugh-out-loud funny. Would that more journalists followed her example of integrity.

My words here can not do justice to her legacy, but there are tributes to her everywhere, most of all in the Texas Observer. Take a moment to read them, and remember her. May she rest in peace.
