Molly Ivins

I really love Molly Ivin's writing and now she is gone and it's sad. I don't know what else to say beyond that. Except to point you to a really nice article by Kathleen Parker over at Townhall. Kathleen Parker is on the opposite side of the political fence but her tribute is very nice.
A great broad is everlasting, a presence, a force, a woman of substance -- solid, intelligent, humorous, sexy and full of "it." Reliable, strong, confident and competent, she walks into a room and causes a stir. The air shifts and heads turn. Who's that?

At six feet, Ivins was impossible to ignore. She commanded a room just as she commanded op-ed pages for millions of readers who found pleasure and inspiration in her words.
Parkers readers do not share Ms. Parkers charitable attitude. Consider this response by Reality (who is apparently not part of the Reality Based Community).
Liberals don't raise hell
They go there. Good riddance.
I should have known better than to read the comments given there are 79 of them. Reading the first ten or so I see three with Good Riddance in them. I'm tired of conservatives.
