R.I.P., Molly

Posted By on Thu, Feb 1, 2007 at 12:01 AM

Columnist Molly Ivins has died, at age 62, of the breast cancer she was first diagnosed with in 1999. The New York Times obit has a couple of examples of the wit for which she was famous, including this description of a Texas congressman: "If his I.Q. slips any lower, we’ll have to water him twice a day."

Update: You can read her last column, "Stand Up Against the Surge," here.
