Molly Ivins, 1944-2007

Columnist Molly Ivins died of breast cancer yesterday evening at her home in Austin. I always liked reading her columns linked on Truthout, which were both insightful and bitingly funny, and often wondered how she got away with some of the things she said, especially about Bush. She was the one who first nicknamed him “Shrub”, for example. It’s sad to lose another voice of wit and reason.
