UPDATE: James Latimore sent a message to Howard Zinn on May 22nd:

Greetings, Howard. The members of Veterans For Peace are stunned and saddened to learn of the death of your wife. We are, of course, prepared to re-schedule the radio interview set for 4:30 PM on May 27. Is it possible for you to let us know of your wishes? If we don’t hear to the contrary, we will cancel the interview and re-schedule later. Our heartfelt condolences to you and your family, and my apologies for troubling you at this time. James Latimore

Howard Zinn sent back this reply:

Veterans’ Voices Important Update

May 23, 2008 by onair

Mike Farrell spoke last night at Malaprops to a full house. Unfortunately he was running late coming in from Atlanta and we were unable to get an interview with him last night. We will, however, have a chance to talk to him in a phone interview in the near future. He has devoted the majority of his life to human rights issues and is a former Marine. This should prove to be a great interview.

Additionally, Howard Zinn’s wife passed from this earth this week and we will have to reschedule his interview to a later date. Our thoughts are with him in his time of sorrow and we wish him and his family well.

Tune in at 5 pm every Wednesday or stream/podcast here.

Next week we will continue our conversation with Ret. Col. Ann Wright. Stay tuned!
