A new biography was just published -- Molly Ivins: A Rebel Life, by Bill Minutaglio and W. Michael Smith. Ivins is one of my favorite people on the planet (a journalist poured from the same mold as another Texas woman, former governor Ann Richards) -- strong, outspokenly true to her liberal beliefs in a conservative state, funny, articulate, and fearless in aiming a relentless spotlight on hypocrisy, greed or stupidity. Though Molly has passed from our midst, long may she shine. Check out the Wikipedia entry for more on her life and times.
