    I don't have an ex-CPers fixation - living hear in Portland I have known some
    splendid characters who still inspire and who once were in the Communist
    Party. I was only responding to Jeff's going after former New Leftists who
    have moved to more conservative positions and Jeff's saying that the former
    Communist Party members had a much better record. I don't think so. Jeff
    takes Hayden for example and because he wrongly supported the Israeli
    invasion of Lebanon (even the Israelis turned against it) he writes him off
    and along the way seems to imply that the invasion was a crime on the level
    of the Nazi assault on the Jewish people. Hayden then becomes the equivalent
    of a Nazi sympathizer. So I have to say some about this - its just too
    sectarian to leave unanswered- but rest assured - I know that plenty of your
    old crowd kept the faith and so did mine.
