Weblog of the sweetest person you never want to piss off.


Molly Ivins, 1944-2007

I'm very sad about this. In the last month two women I know (one mom with a son the same age as Kate, one the mom of a friend who is my age) have had breast cancer relapses (and the accompanying surgeries) and another has had a scare and is considering getting a preventative mastectomy because of her family history and repeated close calls. Firedoglake founder and passionate blogger, Jane Hamsher, recently went in for treatment in her third bout with this wretched disease.

AlterNet has a nice memorial for Molly.
