The story of media firebrand Molly Ivins, six feet of Texas trouble. She spoke truth to power for over four decades - and the gal was funny!Molly Ivins took on corruption wherever she found it.
She was intimidatingly brilliant and quintessentially Texan - six-foot tall, politically left in a right wing state and unabashedly brash in her in/famously lauded political assessments. A workaholic, she traded conventional relationships and intimacy for beer, a solid typewriter, and boots made for muckraking - dedicating four decades of her signature, droll wit to tackling corruption and defending free speech.
Her words "Polarizing people is a good way to win an election and to wreck a country." have proved prescient. Now it's up to us to raise hell.
