Please join me in sending best wishes to Molly Ivins, who is gravely ill in her third bout with breast cancer.
I posted this quote of hers on Election Day this year, and it’s so expressive of her spirit that I’m going to post it again and again. That was a good day for all of us, and I hope Molly enjoyed it too.
“So keep fightin’ for freedom and justice, beloveds, but don’t you forget to have fun doin’ it. Lord, let your laughter ring forth. Be outrageous, ridicule the fraidy-cats, rejoice in all the oddities that freedom can produce. And when you get through kickin’ ass and celebratin’ the sheer joy of a good fight, be sure to tell those who come after how much fun it was.”
