Andrew,

 

It's been a while. Good to see you.

 

Your idea is so tempting... so damn tempting...

 

:)

 

I won't rule it out, but I find it very, very remote. It would make one hell of an intriguing book--fiction or nonfiction.

 

If that's in your veins, I say go for it.

 

Michael

I think this is as good a place as any to put this. Brook says he thinks Christopher Hitchens was "honest". Hitchens of course was a Marxist, and continued to identify himself as such all the way to the end. One of the major points of contention in the Fact and Value vs. Truth and Toleration imbroglio was over whether academic Marxists can be honest. Hitchens taught journalism at a University, I forget which one, but suffice to say he was an "academic". So now we have academic, Marxist, and honest all together in one package, per an Orthodox Objectivist...

Is it time at last to start calling for Brook's excommunication? How much deviation are we going to have to stand for? As Dean Wormer once said: the time has come for someone to put his foot down, and that foot is me.

 According to The Los Angeles Times, Hitchens  ...  also taught as a visiting
professor at the University of California, Berkeley, the University of
Pittsburgh and the New School of Social Research.

 

No doubt a helluva professor. I can only imagine the night classes. Clink.

That foot is indeed you. You have crossed the Is and dotted the Ts and I think the machinery of excommunication can be primed and oiled, ready for a trial ...
