I have been hard at work on my next Marx lecture, which is now mostly ready. On Tuesday, after the lecture, Susie and I will fly to Paris for Spring break [despite the Siberian blast of cold air that has blown through.] You will recall that I am unable to access my blog from my laptop, so I shall take an eleven day break from blogging, and return on March 17th to North Carolina. Considering the speed with which the Mueller investigation is proceeding, the world may be turned upside down by then.
Not too long after I return, I shall teach a six week Osher Lifelong Learning Institute course here at Carolina Meadows, an Introduction to the Dialogues of Plato. Next fall, it now appears very likely, I shall travel to New York one day a week to co-teach a course in the Columbia Sociology Department on the Mystifications of Social Reality with my old student and now Columbia Journalism professor Todd Gitlin, whom some of you may know as a lifelong activist and the third president of SDS back in the day.
All in all, I am managing to fight off the ravages of time as I soldier on toward my eighty-fifth birthday.
