Molly Ivins R.I.P.

Sad news in Austin this afternoon. Columnist Molly Ivins died today at age 62 after a long battle with breast cancer.

Ivins was one of our state's most prominent and outspoken voices of reason in the smug face of white-collared redneck buffoonery. She had the unique gift of being tough as nails as a social critic without losing touch with what it means to be a Texan.
