Today a tribute to syndicated columnist and populist Molly Ivins. Ivins died of in January 2007 and this summer several of her friends gathered at the WERU Full Circle Fair to share their memories. The panel included her long-time assistant or “chief of stuff” Betsy Moon, election reform activist Granny D, fellow columnist and author Hal Crowther, and artist Rob Shetterly.

Molly Ivin’s final book “Bill of Wrongs the Executive Branch’s Assault Against America’s Fundamental Rights” published by Random House, goes on sale October 23rd.
