Goodbye, Neoliberal Kitty-in-Chief: Socks Clinton Moves To The Next Level

I understand that Friday is the traditional day for cat blogging, and I should have provided this link yesterday. But the Radical, being cat-less (and also being a lesbian, so that all associations with cats provoke the specter of unwanted lesbian-cat jokes) is not a cat blogger. So as in all things, she does what she wants.

Click here for an outstanding story by Michael Schaffer about Socks Clinton, who passed away last Thursday. While you are at it, bookmark Obit, the online publication is appeared in yesterday. Edited by Zenith alum Krishna Andavolu it is one of the freshest reads there is, and the advice column is to - uh -- die for. If you are as lucky as I am, you already get it delivered to your desk top. If not, you can arrange for it, I am sure. Tell them the Radical sent ya.

Tomorrow: a response to Stanley Fish from guest blogger Jarrod Hayes of the School of International Relations, University of Southern California.

That's a freaking amazing obituary -- maybe the best I've ever read of any public figure. It's respectful, analytical, poignant, and deeply contextual. Would that all obit writers produced such work.
