Justin,
	Are you contracting the Jerry Disease?  Put your reading glasses
on.  My post below is about Jerry's flaming Carroll:  not blanket
agreement with what Carroll said.  Notice I didn't mention Solidarity

find the time to respond to your volumes of crap about market socialism
and, when it comes down to it, the amorphous, ineffectual blob: 
Solidarity.
