Molly Ivins' advice

Molly Ivins died two years ago today. Her writing combined outrage over injustice with biting humor.

She died too young.

But she left us with some wonderful columns and books and poignant advice:

Keep fightin' for freedom and justice, beloveds, but don't you forget to have fun doin' it. Lord, let your laughter ring forth. Be outrageous, ridicule the fraidy-cats, rejoice in all the oddities that freedom can produce. And when you get through kickin' ass and celebratin' the sheer joy of a good fight, be sure to tell those who come after how much fun it was.
