Here's an unexpected update on this video which I'd almost forgotten about... roughly a month ago at the start of December 2015 I got an unexpected contact out of the blue from the producer of an upcoming documentary called "RAISE HELL: The Life & Times of Molly Ivins", asking for permission to use this clip in their movie! I'm glad that I kept the original tape around on a shelf all this time (and now I regret that I didn't have better recording equipment at the time and had had the time to set up a tripod and record properly back in 2002!) It sounds like a great production and I urge everyone who remembers Molly to check out the film and watch for its release at their website: http://www.mollyivinsfilm.com/
This is a video I shot myself on March 23, 2002 at the "Rolling Thunder Down Home Democracy Tour" in Austin, TX. Molly Ivins was one of the speakers, introduced by the event host, Jim Hightower. (There were many other great speakers including former employees/victims of the then recent Enron collapse, as well as Michael Moore). I've had this video on the shelf for several years but decided to capture and post it now in tribute, since Molly passed away earlier today due to breast cancer at the too young age of 62. Please excuse the shaky video, as I was standing in a crowd and holding my camcorder over my head for parts of it!
