Don Kalish died yesterday. As some of you may know, he was a central
figure in anti-war activism in the 60's in and around LA especially, where
he was a professor of Philosophy at UCLA until he retired some years back.
He was a great supporter of guys in the Resistance--a few of whom took
advantage of his hospitality, which never troubled him much. And he was
one of the founders of Resist (which, btw, continues as a small
"foundation" supporting progressive organizing and educational work). He
was a serious and interesting philosopher, who kicked the academic habit,
pretty much, to work for and support peace and justice.
Folks have been talking of memorials: what would be an appropriate
one for Don? paul
