We Miss You, Molly

"There is a smaller group of citizens in this country who understand that the only reason the Constitution of the United States means anything, the only reason the Bill of Rights means anything, is that there is always a bunch of cranks and eccentrics and mopes and drunks who actually use the damn freedoms described and upset all their neighbors."

Molly Ivins (quote found here)
I guess out of those options, I'm an eccentric...

  1. Heavens, yes. Molly was one of a kind. She never wrote a word that I didn't enjoy and agree with. I won't start with favourite quotes, or I'll be here all day.

    "If he was any dumber, we'd have to water him twice a week."

    Okay, maybe one quote.
