HOUSTON (Reuters) - Molly Ivins, the best-selling author and columnist who aimed her razor-sharp barbs at politicians and dubbed President George W. Bush "Shrub," died on Wednesday. She was 62.
Diagnosed with breast cancer in 1999, Ivins had been undergoing her third series of treatments when she died at home.
