Fintushel was raised by coyotes in a remote cave high in the Sangre de Christo Mountains. At the age of seven (estimate based on dental profile) he was discovered by a band of vacationing neo-Trotskyites who, because of the cyst-like or ganglian protrusion at the base of Fintushel's skull at the exact anatomical spot where Stalin's henchmen's ice axe is said to have (mortally) entered Trotsky's cranium, took him to be a reincarnation of the exiled revolutionary. After a fierce battle with the young Fintushel's coyote protectors, the surviving Socialists, limping and bloody, made their way with the assistance of three Havasupai Indians who had traveled from the bottom of the Grand Canyon in response to a mystic vision of Fintushel's cyst, to a safe house in the suburbs of Detroit.
