Molly Ivins has passed away, RadioAustin, KGSR has posted her obituary, here...

Syndicated political columnist Molly Ivins died of breast cancer Wednesday evening at her home in Austin. She was 62 years old, and had much, much more to give this world.She remained cheerful despite Texas politics. She emphasized the more hilarious aspects of both state and national government, and consequently never had to write fiction. She said, “Good thing we’ve still got politics—finest form of free entertainment ever invented.”

We here at My Sandmen may not have ever agreed with her on a single thing she wrote or believed, but she was nevertheless a strong, determined, and quite articulate champion of the causes and issues she chose to address. She will surely be missed. Dont Ask Why.

God's speed, Molly!
