Molly Ivins 1944 - 2007
It was with a very heavy heart and an acute sense of loss that I learned today about the death of noted progressive columnist and moral bellweather Molly Ivins - who passed away after a long battle with breast cancer. Ivens died at her home in Austin, Texas.
The Austin American-Statesman characterized their hometown hero as "treasured." That about sums it up for me.
