The Late Howard Zinn On Barack Obama

GreenSooner, a member of Daily Kos, quotes Zinn extensively from his last statements on Obama, and advises the people who have recently attempted to invoke the spirit of Howard Zinn in the advancement of Obama’s cause to think carefully before they put words in the mouth of the dead.

I miss Howard Zinn almost as much as I miss Molly Ivins, for some of the same reasons, notwithstanding vast differences of style inevitable between scholar and journalist. If you have access to Bill Moyers’s The Conversation Continues please read Moyers’s interview of Zinn.
