It just makes me mad, cancer carrying off some of the best people in the universe. I hate cancer. I excoriate it.

'Cause I loved Molly. She and I were fellow Texans of the same age and pretty much the same politics. Because we were both Texans by birth, I could appreciate more than most people perhaps when she announced one summer years ago that the Texas legislature had finally adjourned. "Let every village reclaim its idiot," she quipped.

She also wrote this:
The United States of America is still run by its citizens. The government works for us. Rank imperialism and warmongering are not American traditions or values. We do not need to dominate the world. We want and need to work with other nations. We want to find solutions other than killing people. Not in our name, not with our money, not with our children's blood.
Who will speak for us now?
