Friends, old timers and recent persons,
I like Phil Gasper's postings because he finds things that interest me
for me! That is what belonging to a List does for me. It is a List of
people whom I do trust for their judgment and political attitude and
actions. The delete key is easy enough to use if things are not now
interesting to me.
I like things that are not academic, news from Mexico or Africa.. I
cannot say here "from Brazil" because I am the one who sends them...
Each of us has a non-small ego and wishes that he/she would get
comments and answers to his/her postings. But I for one read many of
the postings with great interest but feel no need to "reply". This is
not a visibility-giving List.
We have less nuts now than in the days of John Landon... Hope he does
Hugs to all, Maurice

The only thing fitting this description that I recall was at the
beginning of February, and Claudia Hemphill and I both responded.
It's archived here:

I probably send more to this list than anybody else, but this is not
a high-volume list--fewer than two messages a day (from everyone) on
average. My criterion for posting articles is whether they deal with
issues that would have been discussed in the magazine. If they spark
a response, which they occasionally do, so much the better. Of course
some people may have seen some of the stuff before and others won't
be interested--that's what the delete key is for. I find it handy to
have everything archived in one place, but if a significant number of
people find it irritating and don't want to filter me out, I will be
