"So keep fightin' for freedom and justice, beloveds,
but don't you forget to have fun doin' it.
Lord, let your laughter ring forth.
Be outrageous, ridicule the fraidy-cats,
rejoice in all the oddities that freedom can produce.
And when you get through kickin' ass
and celebratin' the sheer joy of a good fight,
be sure to tell those who come after
how much fun it was."
Molly Ivins, from "The Fun's in the Fight" in Mother Jones, 1993
