	What do you want -- an apology?  We have a revolution to get on
with, and no subject is tabu, nor is discussion of this `insensitive'... 
It's really too bad, for those of us who can't hack it, but they need no
`apologists' looking out for them... 

	Too bad about Poulantzas _if_ it's true. I have one of his books
and his picture is in the dustcover.  Makes you think about why a smart
guy like that would want to do himself in so young...
