For some of the younger members of Marxmail, a word or two about Shane 
might be in order. Along with Jim Robertson, who went on to form the 
Spartacist League, and Tim Wolforth, who went on to form the Workers 
League (the U.S. satellite of Gerry Healy's party), Shane was a leader 
of an opposition group in the SWP that resisted the party's friendly 
attitude toward Fidel Castro and Che Guevara.

This was back in the early 1960s. Shane also wrote a PhD on Marx's value 
theory while he was at Columbia University around that time that is 
highly regarded.

I have no idea what he has been doing for nearly the past 50 years, however.
