Alan Wald's response to my article on "Reform and the Left" (AGENDA, July 1990) wrongly attributef a number of statements and deas to me. For example, i did not say that "a 'typical leftist...'contemptuously dismisses' reforms." I did not say that "efforts to democratize and mobilize the labor unions are doomed." I did not "attempt to reduce a political strategy of participation in the labor movement to a function of Marx-Lenin idolatry." And so on. I do not want to disparage Alan's own views, most of which I agree with. I just don't want to be associated with the bizarre caricature that he created for my argument.
