A howl in memory of Molly Ivins

As you’ve probably heard, Molly Ivins has died at 62 of cancer. There have been many sad tributes to Molly on progressive web sites (here, here, here and here), and rightly so — but somehow I think she might have liked this one better.

In Molly’s honor, I propose that we all let out a howl in accordance with the Klingon death ritual. As all Star Trek fans know:

The Klingon death ritual was a Klingon ritual performed during or following the death of a warrior.

The ritual involves opening and looking into the dying man’s eyes and howling, warning those in Sto-vo-kor that a warrior is on his way.

Except in this case the warning will be directed to any plutocrats who’ve settled into heaven just a little too comfortably, telling them to prepare to be skewered.

    Since I’m un-able to make those noises I had to do a silent howl, but it was a good long howl! I cried real tears too. She was my number one pick for Veep.

    i’ll miss her <sigh>

    This is truly sad news. Molly Ivins was a badly needed voice for reason, and never minced words. She was a spirited, talented writer and a grand lady. I will miss her columns very much. We have lost a progressive warrior. Go in peace, Molly.

    God bless her. Her voice will be sorely missed but her message of courage and truth will stay in my heart forever.
    I have been reading many of the tributes and
    being a Star Trek fan, I love this one! A howl for a brave, funny, spirited warrior is appropriate.
