Molly Ivins hospitalized

My favorite (living) columnist is in a life or death struggle with breast cancer. If you do not know who Molly Ivins is, shame on you!

Read this right now, before you go any further into this post.

Got it? Okay. Good. Now you understand why I am so upset over this.

From Editor & Publisher ...
AUSTIN | Almost three weeks ago, Molly Ivins wrote that she would dedicate every single one of her syndicated columns from now on to the issue of stopping the war in Iraq -- until it ended. But she has managed to finish only one more column since.

The gravely ill Texas columnist has been hospitalized again this week in her ongoing battle with breast cancer.

Her assistant Betsy Moon says she may be able to go home Monday. She adds that those close to Ivins are "not sure what's going to happen, but she's very sick.'"

The 62-year-old columnist had taken an earlier break from her syndicated column, but resumed writing earlier this month.

Last October she had suggested this headline to an E&P interviewer: "Molly Ivins Still Not Dead."
To health, safety, and a speedy recovery. My thoughts are with you, Molly. Come back to us soon.

We need you now more than ever.
