Below is a moving appreciation and obit of Leon Wofsy. The authors knew him well. I only met Leon, and regretfully so, late in his (and my) life, but I will greatly miss him. On my last visit to the West Coast I sat down with him for a chat. In that conversation, we discussed Trump and what it will take next year to beat him, the status of the left and the much broader democratic movement, and, not least, our experiences in the Communist Party. He left the party more than a half century before I did, but for many of the same reasons. His life was noble and purposeful.
