one of the greatest civil libertarian thinkers and writers. A true intellectual, not a poseur

Hentoff defined what true liberalism is. No fashions or enthusiasms - a set of timeless ideals he adhered to.

And he had great taste in music.

 

Thanks for this list., posted on January 10, 2017 at 01:15:30

Quite prolific. And part of my jazz listening experience. RIP Nat.

I married the perfect woman. The downside is everything that goes wrong is my fault.

Without doing a hard count, it looked like Mingus was the most frequently written for.
