Yeah, I remember Beren. I was in NYC when he joined out of City College. He 
was an extremely quiet guy. I assume he was Jewish as well, so it is also a 
religious conversion as well as a political conversion. As far as him being 
a "powerful speaker," as his website boasts, there must have been some 
amazing transformation that took place somewhere along the line. At any 
rate, we are not exactly talking about David Horowitz here. Beren was an 
obscure figure 35 years ago. He remains so today.
