People Who Died: 2006 Edition


The Baltimore City Paper has published its annual salute to the lesser-known notables who died in the past year. 2006's roster ranges from Thrasher founder Fausto Vitello to the anti-authoritarian feminist Ellen Willis.

Bonus links: We've already marked a couple of these deaths in Reason. Amy Sturgis wrote a tribute to the novelist Octavia Butler in our June issue, and David Weigel (one of the Daves I know) noted the passing of the fire-breathing Italian journalist Oriana Fallaci on this very blog.
