Reminiscing... about Molly in Berkeley

Wrapping up... congrats all around

Thanks for joining us here tonight online! Please add your comments

The Molly Ivins Resolution

Robert Manning:
Over 900 proven lies to create a war of occupation i n Iraq.
The people in power learned their lessons well with Vietnam. No draft.
Only embedded journalists.

We're asked to go out and shop.
There's no forum in which we can say 'no' effectively.

The goal of this campaign
Tell 10 more people
The "heart" of Congress is LOCAL OFFICES of our Representatives and

3rd Friday of every month
A coordinated effort nationally


As molly says in her speeches
Its up to us
We can change these things.

In person, phone, fax... info is on the website.

Living our lives... to the fullest.

Tell your friends, buy it, read it.

We've plowed right through the break, another 20ish minutes left.

A lot of great quotes from her columns, read by Molly.

Molly said, while dictating her last two columns:
From now on I won't write anything
Except ending this obscene war
