RIP James Q. Wilson (1931-2012)

James Q. Wilson, well-known political scientist and author of the textbook I used for AP Political Science when I was in high school, died today.

I love his quote about moving back to the Boston area a few years ago: [his descendants] "feel a legal obligation to live within 30 minutes of Fenway Park."
