You Can't be Neutral on a Moving Train.

I am sad to read that Howard Zinn, America's foremost historian and political commentator has died.

For those who have never read his works I begin by telling you should go out and get a copy of A People's History of the United States. A history of the people of the country not the spokespeople or false figure heads. History is not the George Washington's, nor is it the Barrack Obama's.

Thank you Mr. Howard Zinn
May He Know True Peace

“I'm worried that students will take their obedient place in society and look to become successful cogs in the wheel - let the wheel spin them around as it wants without taking a look at what they're doing. I'm concerned that students not become passive acceptors of the official doctrine that's handed down to them from the White House, the media, textbooks, teachers and preachers.” Howard Zinn

Finally his droning will stop. Sorry, Robb, but he was every bit as annoying as Rush. Opposite in every way, but just as annoying. There was no compromise or middle ground.

Guy, your probably upset because he was not on your death pool...

Oh, yeah he is by far much different than Rush. First of he has been virtually ignored by not only the right, but even the so called left. Furthermore, he broke ground and told stories and interpretations that were not the "official-version." Without the works of Zinn, it would be like living in a complete Orwellian world, and for me I think it was a good thing he gave us a counter perspective.

Salinger was, 2 years ago.

With Zinn it was a constant drone of yap yap yap, bla, bla, bla. I was just yelling at him, OK we get it. The choir doesn't need to be preached to...STFU already...
