  •  "life after" right here: quoting Molly@MF (5+ / 0-)

    NCrissieB is cut from the same cloth or steel or both together, as in the fabric they purportedly cut POTUS BHO's inauguration day suit from.

    Being in a more fumble-headed state than usual this morning, I will limit my remarks to thanking our MF host and hug honcho (which is a Japanese word, c. 1955, who would have thunk it? and thunk 10 years after WW II we would have naturalized a word from Japanese for squad leader) for the experience of reading and reading the comments as part of this series.

    I was going to suggest we create the Molly Ivins Award to honor both steel cut cloth ladies, but have learned that there is such a one, which leaves fumble headed one to suggest our creating a MF equivalent. I am game for forming a committee to consider who/what for/etc., on one condition.
    that said Kommittee konsider that it be kondiitonal on our getting the sponsorship of the letter K.

    In recognition of Molly Ivins' hard-hitting investigations as co-editor of The Texas Observer from 1970 to 1976, as well as her subsequent work as a no-holds-barred syndicated columnist, the Association of Alternative Newsweeklies ( announced today that it will name an annual First Amendment Award in her honor," stated an ANN press release sent to RAW STORY. "The award, which will be bestowed every year at the association's annual convention, will be given to a North American journalist whose work best embodies the spirit of Ivins' legacy.

    Alternative newsweeklies association names 'First Amendment Award' after late Molly Ivins.

    •  Yeah, ve must klear everything vith the letter K. (0+ / 0-)

      Vhich is inkonvenient, as K is on vakation vith V, vhich divorced its other half of W over disgust of its inclusion in a president's identifying initial.  Ve heard they pakked for Germany and hope to take in Oktoberfest.  So it may be a vhile....

      Thank you for the kind vords! ::hugggggggggggs::
