    Tragically, Howard Zinn passed away from a heart attack, at the age of 87. He was a tireless activist against racism, class oppression, US aggression overseas, and human rights. Also, a prolific scholar and beloved university professor, and author, most famously, of the celebrated "People's History of the United States." I wish we had a lot more like him, we lost a great one, tonight. Rest in peace.

    For those who are unfamiliar, here's a brief bio; http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Howard_Zinn

    For anyone who hasn't read "People's History", do yourself a favor. He has also authored several other excellent books.

    I heard him speak in Faneuil Hall about two years ago, i think with Amy Goodman, and he gave a great speech. He actually sat next to me and I wanted to just say "Hi" and just say how much I respeected him and his work, but he was talking to somebody and I just said to hell with it. It never occurred to me that would be the last chance.

    Here's a great lecture;
    "Three Holy Wars"

    RIP Howard, you are missed.

    Zinn reminded me that the fight-back is and always has been massive - by looking at the history of those in struggle that's where you'll find the real humanity and the real culture.
