Local Op Ed
I was never really sure why it pissed me off that Pat LaMarche got to replace Molly Ivins in the editorial pages of our local newspaper.
Except I LOVED Molly. She soothed my sometimes sad, often angry political soul after the 2000 elections. With humor. Common sense.
This week's replacement addition is probably intended with truly good intentions. To remind readers of the real dangers of driving under the influence...even a little drunk... can destroy lives. And I will accept that if just one person takes note and changes course, it will have been worthy of the space it filled.
Still not Molly.
I've left a message in the reader comments.
