Randolph Bourne 1886-1918

[Thanks to dr from the mrr blog for turning me on to Randolph Bourne]
John Dos Passos wrote that if ever a man had a ghost, it was Bourne:

A tiny twisted unscared ghost in a black cloak hopping along the grimy old brick and brownstone streets still left in downtown New York, crying out in a shrill soundless giggle: War is the health of the state. Dos Passos, 1919 (N.Y.: Harcourt, Brace & Co., 1932), pp. 105-106.
