Open Thread

Sad news tonight as we learn that Howard Zinn has died. His A People's History of the United States is a classic and if you read it, you will never look at history from only the winners eyes again.

Here's a really great obituary from The Boston Globe.

And here's the AP's version which spends a lot of print real estate saying he was a left-wing kook.

The Globe gets closer to my sense of the man. He was truly a remarkable man who was extraordinarily true to his values of truly appreciating the people who made up this world. He will be sorely missed.
