      The 1968 generation lost one of its most brilliant, durable, cat-loving and principled voices with the passing of Carlos Monsivais in Mexico City this week. He was 72. He was a truly participatory writer who transcended the generations. For example, he chronicled the phases of the Zapatista struggle, and was the subject of a long essay by sub-Comandante Marcos entitled "Of Trees, Criminals and Odontology, A Letter to Carlos Monsivais" [1995]. See Marcos on Monsivais in Hayden, ed., The Zapatista Reader, Nation, 2002.
