Louis: I owe an apology to Barkley Rosser. I have used a
inappropriate level of invective against him on PEN-L and the Marxism list.
I have made a terrible mistake. I thought Ross was one of those snooty
professors whom I detest so much. I drew this conclusion because I found
myself locked in mortal combat with Ross and someone who *was* a snooty
professor in a debate on Market Socialism over on PEN-L. I should learn to
pay more attention to what people are saying.
Ross is not professor, he is just a slob like the rest of us workers and
students on the list and I will tune down my replies if I ever find him
saying something interesting in the future. (Eeek, this reminds of a
horrible dream I had last night. Noam Chomsky was my professor in a course
on Marxism at Bard College. He gave me an F because I turned in a paper on
the 18th Brumaire written with pencil instead of ink.)
