Class Dismissed

In memory of Howard Zinn Paper Tiger TV is showing today a part of the show, which was produced 2004:
Our beloved Howard Zinn died today of a heart attack in Los Angeles; he was 87. What a huge loss, for us as progressives, as human beings who care about the world and about how people are treated.

How lucky we were, to share this world and this time with him; he always offered a perspective that included telling the truth, humor, and hope.

"If we do act, in however small a way, we don't have to wait for some grand Utopian future. The future is an infinite succession of presents, and to live now as we think human beings should live, in defiance of all that is bad around us, is itself a marvelous victory." --Howard Zinn
