Today’s Daily Kos has a celebration of the life and work of Joe Bageant a self-described redneck and unashamed progressive. A man who worked hard and wrote funny and illuminating commentaries on the war on terror, and those who were expected to actually fight it and pay for it too. He also wrote, ‘Deer Hunting With Jesus’, which was on my list of books to buy and now will be my next purchase.
Darn, he was only 64. It’s not how long you live, it’s how well.
For a celebration of his life from a friend– ‘Joe Bageant– We Don’t Last and There’s No Warranty’
From Hippocrates– Ars Longa Vita Brevis. Joe made the most of it.
