Ron writes <<Mr Learner never truly understood the nature of imperialism>>
Both Jama and Ron are my friends as is Jonathan Lerner. I loved hanging out
with Johnny when we were in Cuba on the 2nd Venceremos Brigade 1970 and
later in Vermont during the commune/weather days.
I found that Johnny told two stories that were wonderful and he does
understand the nature of imperialism . Both stories would have been an
excellent addition to Rons book. The story how he threw away the votes as
he was counting votes for the SDS election and gave the election to Weather
and the story how he moved from place to place to meet up with Weather.
There are many more stories that need to be told. It's the stories that make
history interesting. my best Roz Payne
