An Accurate Depiction of the Proprietor

There is more than a hint of Bob Avakian here, too. No accident?

No, it's not deliberate. I hadn't even thought of that. Avakian doesn't wear glasses, plus he has a lot more of a beard.

The primary margin of overlap would be hatware. In that area we are both loyal students of Lenin -- although I am arguably more orthodox, avoiding the corduroy that makes the official portrait of Avakian look so very 1979.
