I am saddened to hear of Daniel Singer's death.  I am proud to have
counted him as a friend.  He was a committed socialist and an excellent
journalist and writer.  His personal story is one of great tragedy, with
his father a "zek" imprisoned by Stalin and his mother's family wiped
out by the Nazis.  Yet he was an extremely kind and generous man.  When
I told him that students in one of my classes had enjoyed some chapters
from his last book (Whose Millennium? published by Monthly Review) and
that I had bragged that I knew the author, he responded that it was he
who was proud to count me as a friend.  I will miss him.
