Not at all. I only get pissed off some peoples' insistence that this list 
serve as an ongoing debate around the value of Lula, Morales, et al. Btw, 
Walter has a mailing list at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/CubaNews that 
has 41 posts by him just today of the sort that he likes to favor us with. 
He also posts much of the same sort of material on 
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/GreenLeft_discussion/, sometimes to the tune 
of 10 posts a day. So he likes to keep busy. I must say that he is savvy 
enough not to post some of his more outrageous material here, including a 
defense of the right of the Chinese government to censor the Internet.

As I have pointed out on occasion in the past here, I am a pretty tolerant 
person. The one thing that pisses me off are debates that do not achieve 
closure. I think somebody once described Hell as never-ending boredom or 
maybe I am thinking of Bill Murray's "Groundhog Day".
