Well, it's one of those days. Howard Zinn has passed away. It's hard for me to eloquently convey the contributions Mr. Zinn made, as they are numerous. Our understanding of history, particularly American history, would not be the same, had he not illuminated a generation of thinkers. If you have yet to peruse a copy of his book, A People's History of the United States, I think you ought to. I hate to be the eternal suggester, but I'm really just here to help. (look- you can buy a copy here) In addition to being the rock star of historians, Howard Zinn continually fought the good fight.
Your presence will be sorely missed.
