Marx's "anti-Semitism"

I just don't get it. You, like me, are on this list every day answering
all kinds of posts. You, like me, appear to be addicted to this form of
political dialogue. But, unlike me, you are seeking a higher meaning in
it all. And now, you must stop jousting with me, because you want to get
serious. OK, get serious. Over the last few months, I've watched
your list of future "projects" grow and wonder why you're still answering
every Tom, Dick, Harry and Jane on every imaginable issue facing our
planet, every day. But, still you promise me a serious tome on "The
Jewish Question," so I'll know your no one to play with. I must be doing
something right to have stopped you in your tracks, even momentarily, to
make a pit stop for maintenance and refeuling. But, please Louis, if
you're serious about all this, turn off you computer (though I'll miss ya
good buddy) and HIT THE BOOKS. It may be tougher than kicking heroin, but
I've got faith in you pal, I know you can do it. There must be support
groups somewhere in the Big Apple.
