Despite my appeals, Gil has decided to remove himself from the list.
I believe (and I told him this) that OPE-L benefited greatly by his
presence.  He was a founding member of OPE-L ... and he will be

Late word: Gil has informed me his departure is 'for the time being',
rather than necessarily permanent, and he might decide to re-join 
after he gets through his backlog of projects.

In solidarity, Jerry

 Jerry, I think it's (past?) time for me to retire from the list.  I've
gotten a great deal from past exchanges, and a number of interesting and
significant issues have been raised in some of the threads I've
participated in.  But I fear that my engagement in future list discussions
might be less productive for a reason Rakesh mentioned in a recent post:
while most others on the list seek to build modern Marxian political
economic theory on already-established foundations, I tend to think that
these foundations must first be rebuilt before useful theoretical
applications can be developed.  Please convey my best wishes to the rest of
the list, and to anyone who wants to continue a particular thread with me,
please relay the invitation to contact me personally.  My thanks to you for
your enormous efforts in maintaining this collective endeavor, and for
inviting me to participate in the first place.
