We'll get your Sunday Bloody NYT Sunday written real soon here, but first, let's note that yesterday, August 30, would have been Molly Ivins's 70th birthday. In our book, the only proof you need that there is no justice in the universe is the simple fact that we lost Gilda Radner at 42 and Molly Ivins at 62, but Henry Kissinger still walks this earth and publishes
