Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

I'm not looking for attribution, just kicking myself for posting it when everyone was in Paris.  Idiot timing on my part.  Plus, I didn't have the brilliance to contact Ames and ask him if I could republish it in its enirety, which it deserves.

I read your diary when I got back from Paris, and followed your link to Ames' full piece on a later diary, if that's any consolation.

Right. I seem to have been treading like a bull on acid on this subject - and with your last post the penny finally dropped.

Let's see. 1) I read poemless diary some two weeks ago, but I should immediately add that I was skimming it and never followed the links. That particular weekend I was gone somewhere else myself, and the week after I wasn't allowed the time to digest new diaries properly. The eXile didn't register with me at all - I simply had not heard of it before.

  1. Even with several hints dropped when Helen brought up the essay as posted on Alternet (dated 1 June, which threw me off) I didn't make the connection that it had been covered by poemless first.
  2. Only now in this thread I finally get it.

So, my regrets for the frustration, if that is of any consolation to you, poemless. What can I say? I'm naive like that. I've added your diary in my introducing text as a meagre form of compensation...

It does seem to show that the essay is able to rouse people independently...

I should be grateful; your work furthers my revolutionary aims of making ET "All Russia, All the Time!"  ;)
