Molly Ivins: Democracy and Diversity

A few years ago, I was working on a video presentation that featured ordinary Americans and their views on how diversity and democracy are intertwined. I wanted to include at least one “name” in the video, so I dispatched my friend Sara — who knows everyone — to Molly Ivins’ house in Austin for a quick videotaping session.
When Molly passed away recently, I started looking for the video. It took a while, but I found it on an unlabeled disc in the closet. Her voice is weak from time to time, but her conviction about democracy and diversity is strong.
