Our mourning continues for the loss of Howard Zinn. A lot of people clearly got a chance to meet and interact with him and it's been comforting that so many people have expressed such positive recollections. He really wasn't just the author of an amazing book, but a living inspiration and guide on how one can live their life. While National Public Radio shamed themselves with an embarrassing interview with a right wing loser*, others, including a surprising Bob Herbert in the New York Times, really strove to capture what we all lost with Zinn's passing and what we gained in his lifetime of contributions.

In totally unrelated news, a number of you wrote to complain about the scrolling favicon that we used to have. We replaced it with a static one. We listen.

We couldn't help but notice that Meredith Tax, a recommended author in our reading list, has a new website. We'd suggest the cooler amongst you go check it out.

*there is so much good independent media out there that needs your help, this was one more reason not to give to NPR

i thought the scrolling favicon was really great, though i can see it could have been distracting if i actually read the longer texts online
