This morning I read that we lost columnist Molly Ivins to breast cancer. It made me sad and a little wistful. What a fabulous, sassy broad she was.

So I reached for one of her three books on my shelf, the one she signed after I saw her speak in Austin, Texas in 1997. Here’s what she wrote:

For Nancy —

Raise more hell, honey
And keep laughin’ too

All best wishes,
Molly Ivins
