Omitting the parts on which I agree with you, let me ask a question.
How do we bring together people involved in the Palestinian struggle
& those who have worked on the Balkan issues, to take just one
example?  Have you tried to do so in Chicago?  I don't mean to ask
only Lou Paulsen -- I'd like to hear from anyone who has tried to do
so, successfully or unsuccessfully.
