TOM HAYDEN R.I.P.
I met Hayden back in the '60s and encountered him over the years. We had a few differences, some that led to arguments. Sometimes he turned out to be right and me wrong, sometimes vice versa. Though I doubt he'd remember them as I always did. He was one of the few national stars of what we called in the 1960s The Movement. And there's no denying the impact he had on our generation, from the Port Huron Statement onward. if you don't know who he was, or much about him, here's the NY Times obit. My condolences to his wife, whom I also knew and admired, Barbara Williams.
