Sadly Riot, the ever cuddly friendly cat who loved laps and was kind to all, this morning he passed in my arms and went softly.

Here are a few videos and pictures of him ... he was such at fatty and so fluffy. He always was excited to hear me coming up the steps, I remember when I parked my bike in the back of the apartment I could hear him meowing as he followed my steps down the alley and back to the front.

He was the first pet I have adopted as a kitten and thanks to the Angell Animal Hospital for diagnosing his heart condition which gave him another 4 years. But the chronic kidney disease took its toll, despite me getting over a needle-phobia to give him fluids every day for the past 6 months, no more needles buddy. I rubbed his head one last time with my beard which he always loved just before he left us.

Riot, I'll always remember you and will miss you always!😭

Hey labor folks, tech workers and all, if you can make it at the end of September hit this up! | NYC Troublemakers School via @labornotes

Is there such a thing as knowing your cat and your cat knowing you too well?

What are the rights of a cat to the lap... trying to figure is this an excuse to get out of work?

The Two Souls of Democratic Socialism

"Some New Politics readers will recognize the title of this article as a paraphrase of Hal Draper’s “Two Souls of Socialism,” which appeared in New Politics in 1966. The first version, however, appeared in the socialist student magazine Anvil in 1960, just as a new generation of youthful activists was emerging, inspired to a large extent by the civil rights movement. Draper’s two souls were the various forms of elite socialism, from British middle-class Fabianism to Stalinism, versus the revolutionary socialism from below that Draper championed—the socialism of Marx. Draper’s hope was to move the radicals of what became the New Left to revolutionary democratic socialism."

A key section on labor changes in the 1990s in Book On New Terrain... For those in the labor movement we may recall the failures achieved.
