Ivins speeches on Midday now

Midday pulled a switcheroo on me that I should've noted earlier - they've assembled highlights of some local Molly Ivins appearances for the noon hour. Ivins died yesterday of breast cancer at age 62.
Don't know yet whether they'll reschedule the National Press Club broadcast featuring the mayor of Los Angeles, Antonio Villaraigosa.
Thank you, thank you for your Molly Ivins program. I will miss her voice.

Molly Ivins has been on my list of must read political junkies for years. She has provided insight, perspective and laughs when they were needed most. I miss her already.
Please replay todays program for those who missed it.

I missed much of the tribute to Ivins on Midday on Feb. 2. Is there some way I can download it or hear it? I too have been addicted to her commentary for years. Her courage and optimism will be sorely missed.

While almost through reading a poem (www.aprweb.org/issues/current/keelan) this morning I heard - let myself hear after an infinitesimal moment of surprise - Molly Ivins reading the poem. Yesterday I tried to write something for Ivins [Molly Ivins Dies of Cancer/Housekeeper Folds Laundry/Safety Inspector Wins Award/Juror Tells of Argument] can't type it now without revising. Molly Ivins. Journalist Jokester Names Names.

At no time did I think I was really, actually hearing Molly Ivins read the poem I was reading in The American Poetry Review. I understand how individuals might mistakenly hear voices. Auditory hallucinations is a clinical term for the false sense experience of hearing a voice. I apologize if I carelessly gave a false or confused impression.
