RIP, Molly Ivins

From the Houston Chronicle comes the news that Molly Ivins lost her battle with breast cancer today. She was my favorite political writer and someone who earned a place on my "five people I would most like to have dinner with" list, especially if she could bring Ann Richards with her. I'd gladly give a kidney for a shred of her wit and writing talent.

If you haven't read any of Molly's books, I highly recommend two older ones, Molly Ivins Can't Say That, Can She? and Nothin' But Good Times Ahead. Her columns are easily found via Google.
