Zinn Again

Whenever I complain about how hard it is to be artsy and curious in this world/country (which is often), Ronny reminds me I have good reason: when societies unravel it's the teachers, artists, and intellectuals that are disposed of first.

Yesterday WMNF's Sean Kinane began a two-part story on last week's release of a 423 page FBI file on the late historian and peace activist Howard Zinn.

Though it seems that the info is not much more than a collection of press clippings and lame or faulty info (you know, kinda like a Facebook page), the threat is on us all when the agency acts as if the First Amendment doesn't apply to them. That oft-argued over piece of paper is the only protection we citizens have on our side.

Stay tuned for the second part of the story on the WMNF Evening News tonight at 6 p.m.
