Goodbye, Molly Ivins

Less than two hours ago, one of President Bush's wittiest critics, Molly Ivins, died after a lengthy struggle with breast cancer. She wrote for the now-defunct Dallas Times-Herald, and later for the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. She began writing about George W. Bush before he became governor of Texas, giving the little Bush the nickname "Shrub." It is also in part thanks to Molly Ivins (in a 2002 documentary) that I know that Texas law — to this day — makes the possession of a dildo a misdemeanor, and possession of six or more a felony. [Texas Penal Code, Section 43.23]

We miss ya already, Molly.
