Yesterday I was away helping Jackie Danicki with her rather good “What MySpace Means” event—and arguing with her fiancé about drug advertising, and meeting up with the Anonymous Economist to have the same argument again—so didn’t get back to DunGeekin’ until 2 o’clock this morning. As a result I am now behind with everything, including my email messages and phone calls. Sorry, friends.

While I catch up, let me leave you with heartily anti-Communist Jackie’s dinnertime justification for her belief that mild-mannered Professor Norman Geras is dangerous:

“The trouble with Norm is that he’s such a nice guy. I don’t want people to get the idea that Marxists are like that.”
