I mourn the death of Molly Ivins. Her voice of reason and sanity will be sorely missed by this reader.
While The Bee regularly publishes columns of the reactionary right, e.g. those of Mona Charen, Jay Ambrose and Victor Davis Hanson, I fervently hope that these will be counterbalanced by an equally progressive voice or two.
Ms. Ivins' combination of humor along with trenchant analysis of the current political climate can never be replaced, but it can be emulated. Choose well.
