RIP Joe Bageant

Joe Bageant was a writer whose main topic was the marginalization of poor white people (in his own words, "rednecks"), but I actually first discovered his blog while reading elsewhere about collapse and peak oil.  He was quite the wordsmith, and I've been meaning to read his book "Dear Hunting with Jesus: Dispatches From the Class War", but have not gotten around to it.  He passed away a few days ago from cancer.  I suggest visiting his blog and reading a few of his pieces, they struck quite a chord with me.
