RIP, Howard Zinn
The world has lost a great historian in Howard Zinn. If you have not read A People's History of the United States, I highly encourage you to do so. It does not read like a history book, but rather like a commentary on history from the peoples' perspective, rather than from the government or big business perspective. Trust me, you will never look at Columbus Day the same again. If you would like to read more about Zinn, the NYTimes has a nice obit on him.
