LOU DUBOSE is a veteran Texas journalist. Monitor co-host Pokey Anderson will talk with him about the book he co-wrote with Molly Ivins about a subject she was passionate on, the Bill of Rights.
And, because we miss Molly, we’ll play a couple of short clips of Molly as well.
Ann Richards and Molly Ivins

Bill of Wrongs: The Executive Branch’s Assault Against America’s Fundamental Rights is an unblinking look at the dangers to the Constitution, but at the same time is a celebration of the lengths ordinary Americans will go to, to protect their rights under the Constitution.

Lou Dubose is a former Texas Observer editor, and former politics editor of the Austin Chronicle. He has also written books on George W. Bush, Dick Cheney, Karl Rove, and Tom DeLay. Based in Austin, he has written about Texas and national politics for thirty years.
