RIP, Howard Zinn

The sad news is echoing around the interwebs, so very little is necessary here in the way of comment. Comrade, teacher, fellow worker, anti-imperialist, and decent human being Howard Zinn, has passed on. He was a heroic and decent inspiration to generations seeking a model of humane, radical opposition. From the Boston Globe obituary:

On his last day at BU, Dr. Zinn ended class 30 minutes early so he could join a picket line and urged the 500 students attending his lecture to come along. A hundred did.

Thank you, Howard.
