Hi John:

The list you attached is quite interesting and revealing:  there are
some odd and obviously arbtrary exclusions (e.g. Jan Myrdal, Graham
Green, Fawley Mowat).  More ominously, there is a _trend_ beginning
in 2002 showing an increasing _rate_ of exclusions -- a consequence of
the War on Civil Liberties which began in 2000 and accelerated in late
2001. An unintended irony perhaps in your case is that your exclusion was
an object lesson on "How Class Works": especially, concerning the
capitalist (and imperialist) state.

PLEASE let us know if there is anything we can do to be of assistance.

In solidarity, Jerry
