The Virtual Stoa
Molly Ivins, born 30 August 1944, died 31 January 2007.
“She cut an unusual figure in The Times newsroom, wearing blue jeans, going barefoot and bringing in her dog, whose name was an expletive. ”
…which the New York Times naturally refused to sully our ears with.
But what was it?
I think it was called Shit. [via]
She will be sorely missed. Ann Richards and Molly Ivins dead in the same year. Texas is a poorer place.
I highly recommend Molly Ivins Canâ€™t Say That, Can She? â€“ the first anthology of her writing published in the early 1990s. Very sharp and laugh out loud funny at the same time.
In case anyone was wondering, the â€œsexually suggestive phraseâ€ about the community chicken filling festival that led to here departure from the New York Times was â€˜gang pluckâ€™.
