Howard Zinn RIP

Late last night I was shocked to hear of the death of Howard Zinn, the inspiring author of A People's History of the United States.

Many writers, bloggers and journalists have written of Zinn in a far more authoritative way than I could, so instead of writing a poor imitation I'll link to a few of them.

Dave Zirin writes a very personal account in The Nation. The Boston Globe.

Bloggers; Luna 17. Capitalism Bad; Tree Pretty. Though cowards flinch. Random Blowe. The Third Estate. Michael Greenwall. Adventures in Historical Materialism. Charlie Parker just keeps it simple.
