Rest in Power Glen Ford: Nov.5, 1949 – July 28, 2021
This has hit me hard, somehow. Please allow me for now to offer only these three Tweets in honor of his journey to the other side. He was a giant among both journalists human beings.

For some he was an expert political analyst, journalist, activist, and broadcaster. But he was my hilarious, fun-loving uncle too. Going to especially miss our countless 5-hour-long conversations, which were formative in making me the person (and writer) I am today. RIP Glen Ford pic.twitter.com/kh7JhNkZy3
