“Then, We Will Return to the Hunt.”

posted by on January 31 at 17:31 PM

The Texas Observer (which Molly Ivins founded, and where I had my first-ever job as a writer) has a loving tribute to Ivins, who died today at 62. Here’s the obituary she wrote after the death of Ann Richards, another Texas heroine who died too soon.

I met Molly several times in person and even had dinner with her once. She had a unique ability to cut through all of the wah-wah to the core of an issue. All too rare these days.

We have lost a great writer, a great woman, and a great American.

She will be sorely missed.

This is awful. I thought we'd have her to verbally eviscerate Republicans for years and years to come.
