Molly Ivins: In Memoriam

February 1, 2007

Syndicated columnist, noted Texas liberal Molly Ivins dies after long battle with cancer
Audio Archive of my favorite debate with Molly Ivins at our joint public appearance (with two Republicans) on social security in 2005

Another well-loved person died today: Kenneth Kincaid, the father of Bob Kincaid, evening talk-show host and Founder of the Head-On Radio Network. Bob and his wife Agnes still run the boards out of the HORN’s central studios in West Virginia.
Kenneth Kincaid was a coal minor, furnace operator, aircraft carrier water tender, grandfather, and father.
He will be missed.

    Nice write up in the Texas papers on Ivins with quotes from all over the globe extolling Molly’s wit!
    Sounds like many will miss her!

    For Molly – I enjoyed her humor and appreciated her spirit.
    The following poem (which is a favorite of mine) came to mind when I read the news of her death.)
    I will not die an unlived life.
    I will not live in fear
    of falling or catching fire.
    I choose to inhabit my days,
    To allow my living to open me,
    To make me less afraid,
    More accessible;
    To loosen my heart
    Until it becomes a wing,
    A torch, a promise.
    I choose to risk my significance,
    To live so that which came to me as seed
    Goes to the next as blossom,
    And that which came to me as blossom,
    Goes on as fruit.

    (Gordon, Thank you for sharing your poem. It’s one of my favorites of yours.)
    Great picture Mark.

    Molly Ivins is a loss to the state of Texas, the USA and everyone who wants truth in the news. With her wit she brought to the people some of the inane acts some of our politicians heap on us all and did it with the expertise of a well informed individual!
    Rest in peace Molly you deserve it!

    Catch You on the Flip-Flop
    If we ever loved someone,
    we found them first in heaven,
    where we planned rendezvous
    to meet again
    on this plane
    to express materially
    what can never die.
    Why is the physical eye
    blind to such intentions
    and not see the greater reality,
    with memory spanning the conventions
    of many lifetimes
    to grasp the meaning of the holy encounter
    that ties souls together,
    for eternity
    and to heaven,
    sharing immortal flowing feeling,
    where we shall return?

    For Molly Ivins
    Although you arrived
    to your final resting
    you live on
    In the minds of those
    your influence persisted
    Mine was one of those
    for now and hereafter……………..
    Thanks Molly
