The paper she trusts the most is the Los Angeles Times which, she says, makes the recent cuts there so hard to stomach -- "depressing," actually.
Regarding her third recurrence of breast cancer, Ivins says "I'd hoped to become a better person from confronting my own mortality. But it hasn't happened."
