“We are the people who run this country. We are the deciders. And every single day, every single on of us needs to step outside and take some action to help stop this war. Raise hell… We need people in the streets, banging pots and pans and demanding, ‘Stop it, now!'”
~ Molly Ivins (1944-2007)
This week on From the Vault, we mark the end of Women’s History Month with a special tribute to Molly Ivins, syndicated columnist and best-selling author, using materials from deep within the vault.
In her own words, Molly Ivins takes a Texas slant on the press and presidents that make up America’s political roadmap. With wit as dry as a bleached cow skull and an eye fixed firmly on hypocrisy, Ivins recalls the landscape of the long trail traveled, and assesses with a clear eye the way forward. Her unique brand of humor brings the welcome warmth of a fireside yarn to the hard-nosed reality of a rocky political landscape.
