Rest in Peace Molly Ivins

Molly Ivins has left us. Tribute at The Texas Observer. I'm gonna miss her. We all are. From her final column, dated January 26th:

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!”

Check DailyKos for some really great tributes to this wonderful woman.

She will, indeed, be sorely missed. Who else could have given us such classic lines as: "I still believe in Hope - mostly because there's no such place as Fingers Crossed, Arkansas?"
