Howard Zinn

A moment of silence, to start, for Howard Zinn, who died yesterday at age 87. He inspired all number of people, most notably, to my mind, filmmaker and teacher John Gianvito whose film Profit Motive and the Whispering Wind was inspired by Zinn's book A People's History of the United States.

Next, a belated link to Lucas McNelly's site 100 films, where he announces his Pittsburgh-based film series, "Indies for Indies" (tentative start date: the last week of February).

This other thing was announced yesterday. Some cross between a computer and a maxi pad, I think?

Ah,! Ryland Walker Knight sends us this recent post from the "are you serious?" website dedicated to all things unsaved. Their target of ire: four ladies in Miami!

Links for the Day: A collection of links to items that we hope will spark discussion. We encourage our readers to submit candidates for consideration to and to converse in the comments section.
