I think David is correct about the concept of ideology being contested, and
that is precisely why I think definitions are in order.  Are we all talking
about an elephant, or is ideology another beast?  Tom Bishop's concept of
ideology may be quite different from Gabriel Egan's.

And some people might argue that your impression of your mother's face is the
product of complex and often antagonistic theories about mothers and
motherhood.

Yours, Bill Godshalk

As to Presidential address at the Rock Hall, why not?  It's the hottest place
in town to have a party.

As to the Great Debate, I've been cogitating a launch of some sort of my own,
but too occupied with travel, snow, and disease to mount it.
