Louis: Jim Percy stayed at my house in NY back in the early 1980s. This
was around the time I was working with Peter Camejo, an ex-SWPer, to build
a nonsectarian left movement. Peter and the Percys had a falling out with
Barnes because they both were moving away from ultrasectarianism.

Peter and I kept evolving further and further away from James P. Cannon's
party-building model, while the Percy's never fully cut the ties. John was
on this mailing list for a period of time but unsubscribed when the PCP
wars were most intense. He asked me to let him know when things had cooled
off a bit. I might invite him back. Of course, I will warn him to delete
all of Malecki's shit unread.
