Joe Bageant passes away

it's only been fairly recently that i became acquainted with joe bageant... i became an instant fan and now he's gone...

Joe Bageant, 1946-2011

After a vibrant life, Joe Bageant died yesterday following a four-month struggle with cancer. He was 64. Joe is survived by his wife, Barbara, his three children, Timothy, Patrick and Elizabeth, and thousands of friends and admirers. He is also survived by his work and ideas.

According to Joe's wishes, he will be cremated. His family will hold a private memorial service.

i'm at that stage in my life where i am starting to see my age-group peers pass on... i'll be 64 myself in december... i'm incredibly grateful for my health and the very active life i lead... joe will be missed...
