Nat Hentoff, who described himself as a lower case “l” libertarian and “a Jewish, atheist, civil liberatarian, left-wing, prolifer” died on Saturday. A contrarian on a par in many ways with Christopher Hitchens and others–he saw what was the gospel of the day and spoke up against. He has the sentimentality of Jewishness and Boston, despite his radical positions.
