Molly Ivins has died…
AUSTIN — Molly Ivins, whose biting columns mixed liberal populism with
an irreverent Texas wit, died at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday at her home in
Austin after an up-and-down battle with breast cancer she had waged for
seven years. She was 62.
Damn just damn
We are the people who run this country. We are the deciders. And every
single day, every single one of us needs to step outside and take some
action to help stop this war. Raise hell. Think of something to make
the ridiculous look ridiculous. Make our troops know we’re for them and
trying to get them out of there. Hit the streets to protest Bush’s
proposed surge. If you can, go to the peace march in Washington on Jan.
27. We need people in the streets, banging pots and pans and demanding,
“Stop it, now!”
