a cartoon about the left
I went to New York city a few years ago and visited Revolution books store, it was on Christmas holidays, so i bought some books and when i was going to go i said to them "happy holidays", and then the guy at the cashier said to me, "we don't believe in holidays". I felt so ashamed and i said to them "i'm sorry its the tradition you know, he he". But now i remember this episode from Seinfeld "The Race" and laugh about it a lot. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O6PdecBn2no

I'm part of a radical literature study group. I went to the Revolution books in NYC. I hand the cashier a copy of "What is to be Done?" by Lenin.Cashier: That it?Me: Yup.Cashier: ::Looks at book:: Have you heard of the "new Lenin"?Me: Um...I haven't heard of it, no...Cashier: I mean Bob Avakian.
