Member of the Club

The Sept 25 issue of "Lefty" mag The Nation contains a high-brow essay written by pro-war neo-con convert Christopher Hitchens. What goes on here? How does he rate?

Does he need the attention? Aristocratic Brit Hitchens writes for Vanity Fair and is a regular guest of right-wing talk show host Hugh Hewitt.

Meanwhile The Nation has never given one microdot of coverage to the Underground Literary Alliance, the most exciting literary group going. They've pointedly ignored our protests, e-mails, and mailings. Whose side are they on?

It shows that more important than ideology in this society is class-- being a proper Member of the Club.
