	I do often dream at night of being an intellectual.  Are you one, Leo?

	Whether it's your goal in life or not, it's what you do.
	The people I talk to and organize ARE hungering for some sort of
ideas to explain the fucked-up world around them.  Sometimes I do talk
about the essence of Trotsky's Permanent Revolution to explain situations
where working people were on the verge of taking power but were held back
by their own leaders who confined the movement to bourgeois democracy and
	A marxist method of analysis will lead to the truth a lot
more than your bourgeois logic and reformism.
	Now excuse me while I wipe your post off the bottom of my shoe.
