I don't have time to moderate a marxism-theory list. I am in law school,
and it's pretty all-consuming. Does anyone on m-2 want to take over from
Lisa in moderating a marxism=-theory list as a continuation of m-2? Or can
we leave it unmoderated until there's problem and then, if there is a
problem, decide what to do then?
