Molly Ivins: Another reminder of what we lost with her

From her 16. January 2003 column in The Free Press
“I assume we can defeat Hussein without great cost to our side (God forgive me if that is hubris). The problem is what happens after we win. The country is 20 percent Kurd, 20 percent Sunni and 60 percent Shiite. Can you say, "Horrible three-way civil war?" And as George W. Bush himself once said, "Unrest in the Middle East causes unrest throughout the region."”

—Molly Ivins

Go read the whole thing, it is just one small example of how brilliant (and what a brillian writer) she was.
