Tom and I have made up. He was mad at me, or thought he was, for reasons
connecting to the personal history of our mutual involvement in
Solidarity, a group I belong to and to which Tom used to. It wasn't of
general interest, believe me. We went bilateral and worked out terms on
which we can interact fruitfully in ways that will benefit the list. The
real political issues between us will be aired in a civil and constructive
manner.
