You're leaving it up to me? Well, my agenda involves more Madonna Studies and requiring students to familiarize themselves with John Waters' oeuvre. If you want to be a party pooper sourpuss and deal with all that labor rights and anti-police brutality stuff, be my guest. I'm happy with the Simpsons and Buffy.

But seriously, Carrol, what the fuck kind of principals do you THINK I meant?

>You make me sick.

Well, it's just pixels on a screen.

For the record, I wasn't asking for theoretical unity. I was asking for a *show* of unity. Part of this involves not yielding to reactionary critics of various "isms," regardless of what your personal opinions about those "isms" are. Carl thinks I'm flogging a dead horse, but I feel like pitting Marxists against various practicioners of continental theory plays into the hands of the Right.
