No, it's got zero to do with music (except maybe in that the best music's dependent on free speech), but it's still the worst news I've heard all week, so... Legendary Texan journalist and hellraiser Molly Ivins passed away today, and I can scarcely believe it.
The lady was larger-than-life, one of the few people out there in the public eye when I was younger who showed that you could indeed be a Democrat, be liberal, and still be a true-blue Texan. She was smart, sarcastic, and funny as hell, and was, in my mind, one of the most incisive social commentators of our time. She always reminded me of my mom, if Mom would ever talk politics. She somehow made even the lowest, sleaziest Texas political manuevering painfully entertaining.
So, to Ms. Ivins, I'd just like to say thanks, and take care. You were (and are) one of the Great Ones.
