remembering Joe Bageant
I was very saddened to hear the news that Joe Bageant passed away yesterday, after a four month battle with cancer. In the fall of 2005 I was lucky enough to hear him speak at a small gathering when I lived in Denton, and converse with him briefly. While I realize it's a commonly expressed standard sentiment, I have to believe everybody who met him and got to know him was pretty lucky. I think you get a sense of that just reading him.
