My friend David Friedman, who was known to many as Mott Green, died last week in Grenada. Because he was both an anarchist and a sailor, I thought I would post about it here.
David was perhaps the most intense (and impulsive) person I ever had the privilege of spending time with, and he achieved remarkable things in his time here. He was the founder of The Grenada Chocolate Company, and his exploits of delivering chocolate via sailboat have been mentioned in Sail Magazine.
His obituary appeared in today's NYTimes at page A16 and can be found here: http://www.nytimes.c...?ref=obituaries
He has also been the subject of a couple of videos/films:
First, a documentary by Kum-Kum Bhavnani called "Nothing Like Chocolate" and narrated by Susan Sarandon. Link here: http://nothinglikechocolate.com/
And a well-done piece by Jimmy Buffet's daughter, found on youtube here: http://www.youtube.c...h?v=3o2UwvVp2iw
If you watch them, you will be inspired. And if you see his chocolate on display (among other places, it is sold in Whole Foods in Manhattan), please buy some. The world could use a lot more people like him.
