RIP Howard Zinn, 1922 - 2010

I can't think of a more perfect tribute to this giant of the progressive community than this interview with Wajahat Ali at HuffPo:

I have no regrets about my political activity, only that I sometimes got carried away with it and didn't find the right balance between obligations to my family and my need to be involved in social movements. As for a work of mine that embodies my "legacy," probably it is not one book, but rather the combination of being a writer and an activist, being a public intellectual, by using my scholarship for social change.

Can you help us out?
