Why is it that their version of public never includes anything or anyone

Hardly want to attack those trying to protect academic discourse from
absorption by entrepreneurial interests
but for people who know a lot about social movements they sure like to keep
the discourse on a
Berlin-NYC-Berkeley axis.

Having been so elitist in their concept and praticn of the public, they and
dear Martha Nussbaum find the wolf now at their door. Anyone who is anyone
would obviously shout, "Indignez vous!!"  Two decades too late.

Will forward you Colin Barker's address. Do you want to talk before Wed call
to Northeastern?
