Texas Says Goodbye to Molly Ivins

Aerialist has a wonderful diary up at Kos that relates what he saw and heard at the memorial held for Molly Ivins Sunday. This will give you just a taste of the eulogies that were offered in her memory:

Siblings Andy and Sara described what Andy called an "Ozzie and Harriet" upbringing in upperclass Houston in the 50’s and a sister who both inspired and entertained them. Struggling to keep up with his big sister on one of their many walks, Andy said he asked Molly how she could walk so fast. "Keep your eyes on the horizon," she told him, "it will make you go faster."

Not only is the diary special, told from the point of view of someone who was there, but the comments are great too. Molly brought out the very best in us.
