Farewell, Molly Ivins

One of the joys of joining the company I work in has been the ability to spend a lot of time in Texas, particularly in Austin. And one side benefit of that was being exposed to Molly Ivins.
I didn't agree with Molly very much about very much, but I feel good about a world that had Molly Ivins in it. It is smaller without her.

I'm sorry she was ill, but...I don't share your enthusiasm for her. In the run-up to the Iraq War, she made a number of "the Jews control George Bush" comments. Ugh.

Where? I tried to find some via Google. That would cetainly disappoint me. I spent some time looking at her 2003 columns, and I disagreed with her no end, but history has shown she had a point, I think. It is her argument from that time against the war that I think deserves respect, unlike pretty much anyone else's.

It was in one of her books and she spent a lot of time backpedalling on it.
