Summary : Fresh Air, Molly Ivins and Dana Gioa

Syndicated columnist Molly Ivins and poet Dana Gioa on this edition of Fresh Air. Molly Ivins' new book (along with co-author Lou Dubose) is Bushwhacked: Life in George W. Bush's America. She is the former co-editor of the Texas Observer. Her freelance work has appeared in Esquire, The Atlantic Monthly, The New York Times Magazine, and The Nation. Her other books include Shrub about presidential candidate Bush, and Molly Ivins Can't Say That, Can She?.
