At three p.m. today the taxi comes to take us to the airport. Before then, I hope to write a reply to Jerry Fresia and others. But this morning, I have learned truly disastrous news. DONALD J. TRUMP IS GOING TO PARIS TODAY!!!! As I was taught long ago by old Marxists, there are no accidents in history. Obviously Trump is doing this to torture me. I must think deeply and divine the true world-historical meaning of this conjuncture.
