So Sad

Damn. Why do the good ones have to leave us so soon?!?!

Molly Ivins is who I was thinking of when I explained the “shrub” mention a couple entries back. Back when I used to scrounge old magazines for entertainment, her column in The Progressive was a highlight of my week. I was always impressed that our local, somewhat good-‘ol-boy Union newsletter ran her column, too.

If there’s an afterlife, I hope she’s having a wonderful dinner with Wellstone, Ann Richards, and hey, maybe even Douglas Adams. All gone too soon. I’m sure they’d all get along well. It’s such a shame. We certainly could use so much MORE of her wit and wisdom. Sigh...

I guess Mr Al is running for Senate over there though. He really wants Wellstone's seat.
