I'm a big admirer of Adolph Reed (although I don't share his hopes for
the Labor Party Advocates.) He's a real scholar, negotiates race and
gender really smartly and without identity-political excesses (instead
of just leaving them out, like the primitive "class is all" types ). And
is really funny and sharp. I couldn't believe it when Alex actually
referred to him in his Nation column as "that fool, Adolph Reed"
(edited down from "that idiot, Adolph Reed.") Wouldn't catch him
talking that way about Ron Paul!
