Passings ~ Jean Bethke Elshtain (1941-2013)

Jean Elshtain has died. You can find an obituary here at The New York Times. I disagreed with much of Elshtain's communitarian approach to politics. She was an early teacher of mine (back in the day at UMass-Amherst) who encouraged me. She was smart and always decent to me.
