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?"

Fanon would, I think, read Fanon. You are totally channeling him. Yeah, he rocks -- good choice of reading!

"what would Jesus do" is all about temperance people in the early twentieth century anyway. I've never understood it's popularity. ooh, look at what a good christian i am, wearing this stupid bracelet. :S nice "recreational" reading. :)

Would Fanon leave his friends hanging and not tell them what's going on for an entire month!
