Hi! This is about the third time I'm sending this message, but on marxism
digest it doesn't appear. Is it my problem, or is it the listserver?
Sorry to post techmical questions here, but what is the difference between
marxism and marxism-digest (of course I'm talking about the lists!).

I'm sorry but I sent this message to the list, and I got it back with
a mailer DAEMON failure. May you have already received it, but I didn't.
When I read today topics, I can't beleive nobody answered to my post.

 and the States are (and I don't have many reasons for liking the United
 States of America, the land of freedom, the home of the brave).
 I would like to write a lot about what I saw in Cuba,
 but I prefer to hear from you talking about the most democratic country of
 Latin-America and Anglo-Saxon America.

 PS: Hope you understand my Castrist-English.
