Howard Zinn, a board member of the National Whistleblowers Center and the famed historian and author of A People’s History of the United States, spoke tonight at Busboys and Poets in Washington, DC. I was in a crowd of over a hundred who arrived too late to get inside.  We huddled together like penguins to hear Howard’s remarks.  "They are politicians," he said, "we are citizens, and we must remember that our role is different than theirs:  We are dreamers."
