Good to know, hard to forget

Amy Goodman has a strong show going today, marking Howard Zinn's death and last night's State of the Union address, mainly with Noam Chomsky.
Amy, of course is on KPFK Los Angeles 90.7 FM, Pacifica Radio. Outstanding perspective far outside the mainstream media. Very worthwhile listening.
Right now, Zinn (interviewed last year) is reminiscing about his role in bombing Germany from the air at the end of WWII.
Now Alice Walker, a student of Zinn's at Spellman College in Atlanta, " Howie gets up and says 'I stand to the left of Mao Tse Tung.' Now no one could believe anyone saying such a thing. I was incredible lucky to have met him."
