It seems, Andy, that the only thing that counts for Louis (and I believe 
Joaquin) is that the LCR *did* dissolve. Everything else is subordinate 
to this. I think Louis' childish marshmallow tossing is for what most 
people do when they think "well, let's see, he asked some pertinent 
questions, let me think about it...". For Louis, this means throwing out 
what he thinks (I can only presume) are somehow witty little barbs 
because he doesn't want to answer or engage in a political discussion as 
an adult.

To be fair I think it's wrong to focus here on Louis (did you *expect* a 
serious answer?). I threw out questions I think need answering, or, 
rather, to the point, 'commenting' on. Since some on this list are 
perhaps stuck with this list as their answer to political activism, I 
was really thinking of Dan Russell who answered a bit to some of the 
questions others poised. . .

I think the development of the NAP is critically important, whether you 
hate it, love it (apparently Louis) or have questions about it (me). Dan 
it seems can be engaged in. As for Louis...'marshmallows'.
