Howard Zinn is Dead

Unfortunately, 30 Years Too Late.
(But better late than never)
An obituary that strikes the proper tone can be found here.
Update 01/30 in the PM: Lest a passerby think that my opinion of Zinn is simply Right smiting Left ideologues, note that opinions of Zinn don't vary all that much. See here. As an aside, I've also wondered from time to time if their early and close contact with Zinn is what kept Matt Damon and Ben Affleck (or turned them into) 'young skulls full of mush'*.

Note: I posted more on Zinn after he assumed room temperature here.
