Molly Ivins has died.

I’m surprised at how this affects me. She was a wonderful woman, wise and funny, and this is a great loss to the nation. Whenever I’m tempted to just write off the whole state of Texas (thanks to a few of its rather prominent representatives), I just remind myself, “Molly Ivins,” and know that I’m being unfair.

Kevin Hayden has put together a sweet tribute to Molly Ivins. We’re all going to miss her.

    I am much saddened to hear of the death of Molly Ivins. Her unique voice brought a touch of common sense and of humor to times when these qualities seem in short supply. She will be greatly missed.
