I know I shouldn't, but when I hear the name "Trotsky", my mind turns to the fight song of my old school, Reed College:
Marx, Stalin, Lenin, Trotsky
Reed's the team that's really hotsky!
And if that wasn't bad enough:
Hegel, Kant, Marx, Spinoza
Come on Reed, hit 'em in the nosa!
OK - I knew I shouldn't...
