"The thing about democracy, beloveds, is that it is not neat, orderly, or quiet. It requires a certain relish for confusion." Molly Ivins, born on this day in Monterey, California (1944) and raised in Houston, Texas. After writing for years for the Minneapolis Star-Tribute, she was a one of the countries most quoted columnists, writing for the Texas Observer in Austin until she died a couple of years ago.

In a biographical blurb she wrote about herself for a Web site, she proclaimed, "Molly Ivins is a nationally syndicated political columnist who remains cheerful despite Texas politics. She emphasizes the more hilarious aspects of both state and national government, and consequently never has to write fiction."
