For some time, roughly a year and a half, I have subscribed to this list 
serve.  I have remained silent, while reading Lyotard, and others, and have 
greatly appreciated this list serve for several reasons: first, I live in 
Alabama, which is not a friendly place for someone who finds an interest in 
Lyotard.  Second, one other individual, a friend, and I have shared this 
interest for several years, but he left to pursue a doctorate in another 
state, leaving me no real partner for discussion and exploration of ideas.  
Thirdly, though I have not participated in any discussion on this list serve, 
coming home and reading what others are thinking, and discussing on this list 
is reassuring and encouraging.  

My condolences to all who have lost friends and family in the recent crisis 
in NYC and elsewhere.  I am shocked but not surprised.  I mourn, but cannot 
find it within me to mourn the loss of any strange kind of innocence that the 
U. S. may have lost from this great act of harm. 

I simply feel that now is a good time for me to tell all who participate in 
this list serve that you are greatly appreciated, and that your thoughts and 
discussions are of great value to those who may not participate as much in 
the discussions.  Thank you for discussing and in the processes teaching and
