On or around 2006 my son Ricardo Octavio bought me Howard Zinn's book "A People's History of the United States." After reading it I summarized the book in the lyrics of my song "Howard's Song."

I emailed the song and lyrics to Mr. Zinn in November of 2006 and he replied "Thank you so much for your song. My wife and I listened with pleasure. The lyrics are certainly appropriate."

This song and video are dedicated to Mr. Zinn for his unwavering contribution to the universal cause of freedom and justice for all human beings, in particular the working class. 

-- May He Rest In Peace - Proudly!
