Lou, I agree with virtually everything you have
written about the Cuba petitions, and I think your
attribution of "political narcissism" to Chomsky et.
al is right on the money.  However, don't you think it
was a bit of bad faith to use against Christopher
Phelps the claim that no one on PEN-L had taken his
side? After all, if they had, you would have certainly
found that to reflect badly on those (imperialist
dupes) on that list, rather than to indicate the
strength of the respective arguments.
