Louis: Don't be so sanctimonious, Jon. When I had 9 Maoists and Louis
Godena charging me with fascism and a whole host of other crimes, you kept
your mouth shut pretty good. Not only that, when I quit M1 in disgust, you
told me that I was mistaken and that things "were getting better". Talk
about Pangloss. Well, at any rate, I hope you keep a stiff backbone on
M-I. That's where it is needed.
