Welcome, Molly Ivins!

Molly Ivins We asked readers if they wanted to read Molly's column in the Albion Monitor, and the vote was almost unanimous: 164 to 5.

One of the most widly-read liberals in the nation, her syndicated column might appear sometimes in your local daily. But she writes two columns per week, and only a fraction of them are reprinted widely. (She normally authors three columns, but this summer is authoring a book about George "Shrub" Bush.) The Monitor is now the only news resource besides the Fort Worth Star-Telegram offering all of her commentaries.
