YOU HAVE TO TAKE THEM ANYWAY YOU CAN GET THEM

This was a great moment, one of the very few we will have under Trump.  Enjoy!  The seemingly slippery Susan Collins held firm for once, and Lisa Murkowski reclaimed Alaska's reputation after Sarah Palin trashed it.  As for McCain, I would bet good money that this was his long desired and patiently awaited payback for Trump's dismissive and condescending remark about his war service.  The wheels are coming off the wagon.  For the first time in quite a while, I enjoyed the morning TV news shows.

Later on I shall have more to say about Paris, among other things.

Murkowski stood firm in McConnell's path
determined to do what she knew she ought
unbent before the slimy turtle's wrath
three senators, at least, could not be bought.
Beside her, John McCain did what he'd said
and voted with the Arizonans' will
it's hard to bribe a man who'll soon be dead
to vote against his conscience for your bill
Sue Collins proved repeal's ultimate bane
the snow-job couldn't make her bend or blink
she serves the upright citizens of Maine
a lot of whom are living on the brink
Until health's guaranteed in every state
there's work to do to make our country great

Professor Wolff
I didn't want to take a substantial amount of your time by emailing you and asking you a rather simple question, so I will just write my question which is embarrassingly enough not relevant to this post here. I was wondering if you are still planing to do a lecture on Marx, and the Frankfurt School. Thank you for your time.
Regards,
Armin

Armin O, I have tentative plans to do a series of public lectures on Marx at Columbia University in the Spring semester. They will be taped and put on YouTube.
