Howard Zinn

1922 - 2010

I met Howard Zinn once, briefly, at a memorial service for Dave Dellinger in NYC, about 5 years or so ago.
I only had time to say how much his work had meant to me. He could have, by himself, been the subject of Tom Brokaw's The Greatest Generation. Instead, i doubt he was even mentioned.

Now, who will write the People's History of the 21st Century?

UPDATE: You know what? Fuck NPR.

  • There's a reason I can't bring myself to listen to the dreck on morning edition and ATC anymore. I don't know when it happened but the radio that used to be rational and sensible has fallen apart.

  • Even worse, i think they're trying to say that because Zinn appealed to elitist Hollywood types, his work lacks validity. I suspect the author of the obit has never read People's History.
