Since Johannes got bit by the worm that Julio accidentally sent to the
list, I imagine that he needs some consolation. Let me express that in
terms of saluting him for his critical-minded and independent approach to
the Yugoslavia question. Not only did he provide this valuable information
on Nezavisnost today, he also forwarded some important information on
harrassment of Serbs in Kosovo last week. This is a model for the kind of
objective investigations that Marxism needs today. I salute Johannes.
