Howard Zinn, R.I.P.

Here is an article from the Boston Globe reporting his death. He was an activist, a scholar, and an inspiring historian-from-below. His death is a sad loss to the North American left. Condolences to his family and friends.

EDIT: Check out this tribute from Alice Walker, Noam Chomsky, Naomi Klein and others from Democracy Now!

This is sad, indeed.

I didn't agree with everything Howard Zinn had to say. But he had a fresh perspective on history, and asked questions that few would dare to.

It's a considerable loss.
