She came. She wrote. She conquered.
In the age of journalism being called enemies of the people by nutjobs in the White House, it’s important to celebrate the brave ones who dare to take a stand against corruption, hypocrisy and just plain terrible politics.
During her illustrious career, Molly Ivins proved that a little salt makes everything better. Especially in her newspaper column, which was often censored by out-of-town publications in which it was syndicated because of her decidedly liberal point of view. (Spoiler: She despised George W. Bush.)
Whether you knew Ivins and loved her no-holds-barred wit or have never even heard of her, Raise Hell: The Life & Times of Molly Ivins should be immediately added to your moviegoing agenda this weekend.
In times like these, we could really use a voice like hers, but the next best thing we can do is celebrate her spirit.
And maybe get the courage to raise a little hell of our own.
