Reading Group Cancelled This Week

29 Oct

Greetings all. Unfortunately, due to extenuating circumstances, it will be necessary to cancel Reading Group this week. We will tackle McLuhan next week. I will also hunt down a cleaner copy of the text before then, as I discovered that the pdf I uploaded was a rather bad ocr.
