Terrible News

Chalmers Johnson died yesterday. Tom Engelhardt offers some eloquent thoughts here.

Johnson was one of the very few contemporary writers who consistently commanded my deep admiration and broadened my understanding. Engelhardt lists Johnson's books. I recommend in the strongest terms that you read and study all of them.

I didn't know Johnson and never communicated with him. But I knew his work and its unique value.

His death is a very great loss.
