	I'd just like to say here that, IMO, if there was any defining
moment in the past 25 years when the present neoliberal assault _could've_
been nipped in the bud, it was the outcome of the Left's success or
failure to defend the PATCO strikers. 

	Needless to say, _we_ lost -- and are suffering the consequences 
in _SPADES_... :<

	Comments?
