Molly Ivins, RIP
http://news.aol.com/topnews/articles/_a/syndicated-columnist-molly-ivins-dies-at/20070131191809990001?ncid=NWS00010000000001. The great columnist died of breast cancer at age 62. The best quote in the article is Ivins' statement that cancer can kill you, but it doesn't make you a better person. She might also have added that being in a position of power doesn't make you a better person, but if you ever read her columns you know that she was not afraid to expose the faults of those in power, particularly the former C-student and party boy she unaffectionately called "Shrub."
