John Whitehead on Nat Hentoff

John Whitehead of the Rutherford Institute has a nice post about Cato Senior Fellow Nat Hentoff.

Here’s an excerpt:

At the age of 85, Hentoff is a radical in the best sense of the word — a true freedom fighter and warrior journalist with a deep‐​seated intolerance of injustice. His integrity and willingness to buck the trends have earned him the well‐​deserved reputation of being one of our nation’s most respected, controversial and uncompromising writers.

Well said. At age 85, Nat Hentoff continues to write books and a weekly column. His new book is At the Jazz Band Ball: Sixty Years on the Jazz Scene.
