I don't have anything to link yet, but as of this writing (7:00 pm, ET), MSNBC news is flashing a Breaking News headline that Molly Ivins has died.
And with that, I'm going to go into a room from where the Daughter won't be able to hear me swearing a lot.
UPDATE: And two minutes after I clicked "publish", the link. Ivins died of the breast cancer she'd been fighting for some time.
Condolences to her family. This sucks.
