“If I didn't define myself for myself, I would be crunched into other people's fantasies for me and eaten alive.”
--Audre Lorde

  • Finished Beloved this morning before anything else.
  • Listened to Howard Zinn on Democracy Now! this morning, on the subject of "good wars." It was nice after just criticizing the unification of America in my paper on the Revolution and pamphleteering, to hear another attack on early America. "What is dubious about the Revolutionary war?"
  • Returning to Radical Teacher #87, I found this paragraph striking from Rick Wolff's piece, "Teaching Capitalism's Crisis:"
    This is not a financial crisis. It is rather a systematic crisis rooted in the conflicted relation between employers and employees across all capitalist enterprises in the United States. It flows from Main Street as much as from Wall Street. It engulfs households, enterprises, and the government. It is a crisis of capitalism and not merely of finance.
  • Cracked our new copy of Logicomix before bed. Got 6 pages in or so.
