If only Molly were here to see this.

I have said those words more than a few times since liberal columnist Molly Ivins left us, far too soon, in 2007.

But when that phrase came to me again last week, it wasn’t because she had missed out on something so rich that it would send her into column-writing ecstasy.

It was because of some news that would have made her very sad: her former employer, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, is shutting down the Austin bureau where we once worked.
