Chalmers Johnson is gone.

With deep sadness, we have learned of the passing of Chalmers Johnson.
A noted historian, writer of several influential books including one in my
collection, Blowback, and critic of our imperial presence all over the globe,
he was a man of great intellect and honesty, commodities that are scarce
nowadays.

He was 79 and leaves his wife and intellectual companion, Sheila, behind until
they meet again. Our deepest condolences go out to her and their many friends
at this time of great sorrow.

I cannot overemphasize just how great a loss this is to those of us who believe
this country has gone down the wrong path. This is devastating.

But the man wrote many books recently that shed light on a possible future path,
perhaps at some point our leaders will gain the knowledge within those books, and
change course before it is too late.
