Ever since the Militant went online, I’ve made a point of skimming 
through it looking for obits. I have zero interest in the group’s 
politics but have remained curious about what happened to people I knew 
in the sixties, especially since our generation is increasingly 
vulnerable to the sorts of geriatric illnesses that take you down for 
good. Of course, the law of diminishing returns applies here since the 
group has shrunk to such an alarming degree. Even when it was larger, it 
was likely that the people I really cared about would never get an obit 
since they had become unpersons like Peter Camejo. The only way an 
ex-member could rate an obit was if they were number one not an “enemy” 
of the party, and number two someone who had contributed time and money 
to keep the sect-cult afloat.

Pat Grogan was one of those people.
