This week I re-read Franz Fanon's "The Wretched of the Earth." Though many of my former militant friends from the UofO would disagree that this is not exactly the best "recreational" read, it does have some other value. Hmmm, like continuing to fuel one's hatred towards bourgeois revisionists and bitches of the state. Fanon was no sucker. Instead of wondering 'what would Jesus do" I ask "what would Fanon do?"

I just heard some exciting news today, depending on how you take it I guess, about a former dictator in Chile. Yes, Augusto Pinochet is on his death-bed. In case you don't know who this piece of crap was....he was dictator of Chile for more than 10 yrs., murdered suspected "subversives", anti-left, and was a U.S. whore. He faciliated the coup that toppled the democartically elected Marxist, Salvador Allende (who during the coup lost his life). So as morbid as this might sound I'm sure that I share the same sentiments with my Chilean comrades. Finally, maybe, some reconciliation. But yet, he's still alive.
