Howard Zinn

Here's to our heroic, learned, brilliant, patient, compassionate, generous, and very funny friend, Howard Zinn, who passed away this afternoon. He leaves a legacy of truth, inspiration and optimism. His kind and wizened voice will always be what I hear when my conscience prompts me to behave like a decent and responsible person. Thanks for everything, Howard.

(NOTE: I promise to post a more complete tribute to Professor Zinn when I have had a chance to absorb this sad news for a little while longer.)
