Must-read: Steve Clemons on Chalmers Johnson

Steve Clemons' fine appreciation of Chalmers Johnson, who died yesterday at 79, is worth every moment of your time, even though it concentrates on the earlier, more "conventional" (?) portion of his career when he was merely a daring and original foreign policy conceptualist, before his evolution into a kind of a gadly, the thinking man's Noam Chomsky.   I'm sorry I discovered Johnson only a few years ago but while he may be gone, he leaves behind a body of work that will reward careful attention for years to come.

Also worth your time:  James Fallows here and here.
