Pah! Marx needs no vindication from this publication.

Yawn!

Capitalism fails over and over again but greed drives it on.

Time to put back the portraits of Marx and Engels in their rightful place on the wall of my study. Perhaps I will include a reproduction of that painting of the Prophet from Nazareth expelling the moneychangers from the Temple.

http://www.arthermitage.org/Luca-Giordano/Expulsion-of-the-Moneychangers-from-the-Temple.html

The one by Giotto is a bit too simplistic for me. Perhaps more suited to the primitive Marxism of Brother Sasha and his acolytes in the CPSU (Bolsheviks).

What is simplistic about Giotto? Pah! Your understanding of aesthetics is clearly as stunted as your knowledge of Marxism.

Join me, brother, and I'll help the scales fall from your eyes. Join the Party!

And Groucho and Harpo and Chico and Gummo and Zeppo should all be vindicated as well!

There's nothing funny about the business of comedy! It's deadly serious!

Let's not forget Alfred Marks. I saw him in "Poppy" at the Adelphi, way back in 1983 or '84. I sat next to the Chinese ambassador's daughter. Ah, happy days!

I've never understood the appeal of American comedy shows. Mind you, Sgt Bilko wasn't bad.

Poor Fonzie - where is he now? On TV ads touting the wonderful benefits of reverse mortgages.

"Ah Fonzie! Ah humanity!".

Dear grahamb,

Jeepers, you must be almost as old as I - how about "I Love Lucy?"
