TOM HAYDEN was a founding member of SDS, one of the Chicago Seven or Eight, and a lifelong leftie gadfly who in the early 70s did a walking tour of the Hanoi Hilton with his second wife Jane Fonda. I met him once in the mid-90s, but did not form a lasting friendship, not having been shown the memo about him being the only one in the room who gets to talk. Unlike his co-conspirator Jerry Rubin, he never became a Reagan republican, but neither did he become governor of California, Mayor of Los Angeles, or an LA city council member, try as he might. He did, however, become a state senator, and was a champion of progressive causes and animal rights to the end of his life one year ago today at age 76. Go to heaven, Tom.
