RIP: Leszek Kolakowski 1927-2009

All things pass but MC was distressed to learn just today that Leszek Kolakowski died on July 17th. Click on the title of this post to read Christopher Hitchen's thoughts on his passing. Go to Amazon and consider buying "God Owes Us Nothing" or "Modernity On Endless Trial." Or just read the Wikipedia entry (always with caution) on him. A great mind has left us.
