Molly Ivins - Unbeliever's Land
...The continuing chronicles...
Molly Ivins

I grew up in Texas, reading Molly's commentary on local politics, and graduated to national politics about the same time she did (or so it seemed to me). She's been a hero of mine as long as I can remember, for the way she laughs at the results of the political process, even (especially) when anyone's natural impulse would be to scream as loud as they could.

I agree with Pat -- it would be a tragedy if she didn't survive to see "Shrub" get his comeuppance -- and get to write one last column about it.

Be that as it may, I am glad I can count her amongst my heroes whom I have personally met:

More personal photos of her available here.

Well, you can color me "jealous." I would've loved to meet Molly. I'm sure you've heard the news by now. :-(
