Smoke, fog and Wobblies + Envy
> I was down there near where you were but on Monday (Labor Day) for a program at the ILWU Hall next to (really behind) the ball park. I found out a lot about the Wobblies. It was great and they even had lunch for everybody. Solidarity Forever!
Beverly, thanks for writing. I read other people's blogs and they get lots of mostly inane comments - which shows how popular they are, I guess, and takes me back to high school, hell, maybe even grammar school, and I feel bad about myself for having comment envy. (Get a grip!) And because I like what you've said so much I am going to put it all on my blog, sans your address, of course.
Gosh. Wobblies. (click to read Wikipedia entry)
I get sick when I think how far the pendulum has swung away from the workingman. Now it's all about the whole planet - and I don't know if we'll live long enough to see any balance happen between the haves and have-nots - or if the planet will still be friendly to us in the process.
