What Would We?

In his e-mail to me, Richard Nash so mocked the idea of "What Would the ULA Think?" that I think we should adopt it as a slogan.

After all, in his foreword to the recent Black Book anthology, Aaron Hicklin wonders about exactly that.

I don't know. What do you think?

...I think that I probably won't be buying any Soft Skull books, nor will I ever link to the place or anything. Nash's attitude as you've portrayed it is disappointing. Though I'd like to see the actual e-mail, his actual words, the actual source; I don't feel comfortable (or logical or fair) drawing conclusions based on something I haven't actually seen.

It's highly ironic (if not hypocritical) for an outfit which, as I understand it, started out as one guy making copies on the sly at his McCopyShop job to argue that what the ULA thinks is irrelevent or unimportant. Even more pathetic that they feel that a multi-millionaire fatcat who's probably never set foot in a copy shop has more to say to their readership than a bunch of writers actually from the underground.
