Jerry Fresia sent me a copy of a great letter written by Gabriel Kolko to REASON magazine. Gabe and Joyce Kolko and I were friends back in 1959-61 when we were all at Harvard, part of a little group of lefties who called ourselves The New Left Club of Cambridge [see my Autobiography.] I went to Google to find out where he was so that I could send him a note, and discovered, to my great sadness, that he passed away just three days ago at his home in Amsterdam. Gabe was one year older than I. A good comrade, and, judging from the letter Jerry sent to me, true to our beliefs to the end, unlike certain other members of that little group. I shall miss him.
