The Fort Worth Star-Telegram has an obit, and a selection of her best columns, among other things.

In Mother Jones: Thank You, Molly Ivins, where they'll be posting and archive of her columns soon. In The Nation: Remembering Molly Ivins. In the Texas Observer. Some links to obits and bloggers's reactions on Memeorandum.

More of her columns.

I saw Molly Ivins once, when she spoke at a Special Libraries Association convention in San Antonio. The other headliner that year: Dave Barry. What a double whammy. (I think Molly was funnier....) Some quotes from these speeches in the Library Journal article (Last few paragraphs), which mentions me too!

She spoke for a lot of us. From her last column, Stand up against the 'surge'...
We are the people who run this country. We are the deciders. And every single day, every single one of us needs to step outside and take some action to help stop this war. Raise hell. Think of something to make the ridiculous look ridiculous. Make our troops know we're for them and trying to get them out of there. Hit the streets to protest Bush's proposed surge. If you can, go to the peace march in Washington on Jan. 27. We need people in the streets, banging pots and pans and demanding, "Stop it, now!"

(Added later:) Sheila Lennon's post on Molly has more links, including a link to Molly Ivins Quotes and another story archive from Creators Syndicate.
