So do we care more about dogs than uninsured kids?

Edit: I'm not answering the question with the subject line--this is just one of Dionne's patented kick-ass columns.

Now I may just have to go out and find Gore's new book. Not to mention the one of Dionne's I've been meaning to read nearly forever, Why Americans Hate Politics.

Boy, it would be fun if Al Gore changed his mind and ran for president -- fun for the voters, anyway. Imagine a candidate whose preelection book is devoted in large part to an attack on the media for waging war on reason.

I haven't had a chance to write about it, but yeah, I noticed that we lost a dear girl last week, Molly Ivins. I didn't know her personally, but I shall miss her terribly.

Coincidentally, I also happen to adore E. J. Dionne, and his tribute column to her was spot on. I love the term that Dionne coined for her: Joyful Outrage. It fits. Beautifully, hysterically.

So long, Molly. We'll keep an eye on the Lege for you.
