I am almost too sad to write this.
Molly Ivins, the greatest political columnist on the planet, has left us.
Last year she revealed she was undergoing treatment for breast cancer, the details can be read here.
I just want to say that my heart is broken, my hero is gone. Molly is why I write what I write. Molly inspired me continually, and I will miss her so badly.
The world has lost a brilliant, witty, wonderful woman.
