Great long interview with Chris Hedges over at dandelionsalad. He puts out some moving material, it was well worth setting aside and hour or so for his views. He's a life-changer. Poignant mention of his 3 year old sons favorite book, and great book recommendations too.
He said he had to stop talking so he could go write something, that was why he was there. I imagine this is what he ended up writing, it has some points of contact with the interview. The Best Among Us.
