Molly Ivins

Molly Ivins, one of the more vocal female columnists, has written her last column. This is what she wrote in the last paragraph. "We are the people who run this country. We are the deciders. And every single day, every single one of us needs to step outside and take some action to help stop this war. Raise hell. Think of something to make the ridiculous look ridiculous. Make our troops know we're for them and trying to get them out of there. Hit the streets to protest Bush's proposed surge. If you can, go to the peace march in Washington on Jan. 27. We need people in the streets, banging pots and pans and demanding, "Stop it, now!"

If I could design a tribute to her, I would ask every female in the U.S. who is against this war to take to the streets with their pots and pans and bang them non-stop until President Bush listens and makes calculated steps that will end this war and bring all the troops home.

I'm somewhat of a columnist junkie. I read the newspaper, but I pay special attention to commentary whether a column or political cartoon that makes it to the editorial pages or opinion pages. So along with Maureen Dowd and Ellen Goodman, Signe Wilkinson, Molly Ivins was a must-read. I will miss her.

Here's to you, Molly. clangclang clangclangclang
P. S. President Bush actually had some good things to say about you.
