As many others in blogland have written, today is a day for mourning. Molly Ivins, that great soul from Texas who delighted us for years with her sharp insights and sharper wit, has passed on. I found out at work and the news just stopped me in my tracks for quite a while. I've never met her, but I feel I've lost someone special to me. I didn't always agree with what she said. But I always learned something from reading her point of view.
Working Assets has a great archive of Molly's articles. If you've never read her writing, you should definitely check it out here. I didn't know she was ailing. I just knew that her postings have become scarcer and scarcer of late. So I guess this news isn't a complete surprise. My heart goes out to her friends and family, and to all those who are missing her tonight. Our country lost a great champion in the search for truth and justice.
