Thursday Thirteen #19

My TT last week was a sort of tribute to Molly. I was intending to write a more voluable one later but I was sick all week so instead I collected other peoples tributes and thouroughly intimidated myself. This little obsession of mine took second place only to the major movie marathon I was engaged in as I attempted to watch all of the thirty some DVDs coming due at the library over the past ten days.

So when it came time for TT again this week, my choice of topic seemed limited to movies or Molly tributes if I wasn't to have to wrench my focus away from what was engaging it. Molly won hands down because I really wanted to do one more thing to honor her and engaging in thie project was an antidote to the funk I sunk into as the virus had its way with me and the anxiety that consumes me as the library's closure date looms ever closer..

Very nice. I'll read a couple, though to read all of them might take more time than I have...

Molly will definitely be sorely missed. We lost a good one, there.

I've read maybe 3 blogs this morning, where the person has been down with the flu. I guess it's bad this year, huh?

Terrific list! Hope you're feeling better.

Joy this is a great TT - thank you so much for taking the time to link so many really thought-provoking pages - I really admired Molly Ivins tho I only read her sporadically - here I esp. liked the Keillor piece as well as Paul Klugman - Ms. Ivins really hit the nail on the head about Iraq - this led me to another great article of hers (linked at the top on the same page as Klugman) too - astute as always. she will be greatly, greatly missed - not least because this country seems to be running low on intelligent people who will speak out.
