Joe Bageant "was an extraordinarily gifted writer and thinker. Author of Deer Hunting with Jesus: Guns, Votes, Debt and Delusion in Redneck America and countless essays and editorials on politics and society, Joe was a champion of human rights and a fearless critic of [the US] government’s mistreatment of its working class."

So says the Dangerous Minds blog which (along with Jodi Dean's I cite) brings my attention to the sad news of Joe's death. RIP big man.
