Howard Zinn, thank you for all you gave us.

You gave me history. You gave me hope.

Thank you.

You will be missed, always.

Very sad. Would that we all could do as much good with the time we have.

Thanks for introducing me to him, btw, Laura. I'm pretty sure I picked up People's History after hearing you talk or blog about it.

So, so true. He never stopped, either. The film based on his work (produced by Matt Damon and other fans) has been debuting, and he was interviewed just two days ago.

Also, his wife died during the past year. They were together since their earliest days in the civil rights movement.

You did - I remember it. I'm very glad to have done so.

I remember when Allan brought that book home. I had heard of it but never read it. Once I did, the way I looked at the world changed, permanently.
