Molly Ivins passes away

Molly Ivins has succumbed to cancer at the age of 62. From the AP via the P-I come one of her quotes that is receiving wide distribution this evening:
"Naturally, when it comes to voting, we in Texas are accustomed to discerning that fine hair's-breadth worth of difference that makes one hopeless dipstick slightly less awful than the other. But it does raise the question: Why bother?" she wrote in a 2002 column about a California political race.
America has lost a great voice.
