Losing a Steel Magnolia: Molly Ivins
While still working on my moving project I heard on the news that Molly Ivens died this evening.
She bravely battled Breast Cancer since 1999, and went back into the hospital 3 days ago.
It really tugged at my heart, I remembered seeing her on an interview last year saying how she could not die with Dubya
in the White House.And I found myself cussing" Son-of- a-Bitch".....And then I thought about it, and realized that Molly is not your Usual Angel, but she still is an Angel. We need Angels that can cuss and swear and call an Ass an Ass.
I like to picture her having lunch with Ann Richards and talking about George, and what an Absolute Ass he is.
I like to think of them laughing and telling good stories with That Great Southern Woman Wisdom.
Please God Don't take Any More of Our Steel Magnolias, we need them damnit.
In the end of "Bushwhacked",( one of her Finest) the last Sentences say it all...
She talks about How We All are in Big Trouble and.....
"Time to raise Some Hell".
