R.I.P. Molly Ivins

Written by

Molly Ivins, the nationally syndicated columnist and Columbia Journalism School graduate, died of cancer at the age of 61 today. Ivins, a witty Texan,  was known throughout her life for an unpretentious, down-to-earth style as well as her strong, self-proclaimed liberal views. Most recently, Ivins had written in strong opposition to President Bush and his planned troop surge in Iraq.  The Nation has a good tribute piece worth reading even if you haven’t been  acquainted with Ivins’ work.

    strong occupation is a considerable (conservative?) misprint for strong opposition in remembering a political journalist.

    Truly a journalistic goddess. I always read her column every Monday in the Seattle Times. Then again, I suppose I was indulging myself, but on a more general level, it's sad that we've lost a political polemicist who could argue intelligently, cleverly, and with taste.

    Oh, no. I can't believe she's gone.
