I am deeply saddened to learn today of the death of Norman Geras, Professor Emeritus of Politics at the University of Manchester and author of Normblog.
I was a big fan of Norm's writing and, in the days when I was blogging regularly, I frequently linked to his posts at Normblog.
The world is made poorer by his passing. He will be greatly missed.
