Molly Ivins

I know you have already seen it like me, linked by atrios, but I just have to throw in here. Molly Ivins accomplished what so many of her brothers and sisters in the craft (do you hear me Broder, Cohen, Dowd, Friedman, blah, blah, blah) could not: speaking to readers from the heart in a smart way without condescending. I don't bother mentioning her brothers and sisters on the other side of the divide (Brooks, Ignatius, York, Lowry, D'souza, Sowell, Noonan, Krauthammer, etc.) it is obvious whatever heart any of them had was sold to the highest bidder. Molly Ivins was a liberal's liberal. She did leave the world a better place and unfortunately, voices like hers don't come around very often. We will miss her.
