And here's to you, mate. I always try to remember that William F. Buckley and John Kenneth Galbraith agreed on precisely nothing of a political, or even economic, nature and yet were life-long friends. Mild mockery, a few good-natured jabs, are acceptable if the more important virtues of camaraderie and companionship are pre-eminent. I have read, and hopefully written, nothing that would be seen otherwise.
I look forward to your publication of, "A Communist Sailor's Manifesto".
