Molly Ivins, R.I.P.

Political writer Molly Ivins passed away today after an 8-year struggle with breast cancer. Ms. Ivins was possibly one of the funniest, earthiest political commentators around (it was she who named Bush "shrub"). She'll be badly missed.

Her second-last column, published 3 weeks ago, urges America to stand up to the Bush administration to end the war.
