I should have mentioned this earlier, but it slipped my mind after I got to work. Molly Ivins, the scathing columnist who wrote several books about George W. Bush and his baffling rise to power, passed away at the age of 62 after a battle with cancer. We often complain about the media not standing up to our idiotic politicians, but Ivins was a constant thorn in Shrub’s side for years. I’l definitely miss her wit and wisdom. I’m putting Shrub: The Short but Happy Political Life of George W. Bush on my reading list.
