I dreamed I saw Joe Hill last night......

Happy Labor Day! Throughout most of my working life I was proud to be a blue-collar worker. I probably would have joined a union if there had been such an entity in Texas. Nowadays the job I used to do is done mostly by poorly paid workers in far-off lands and the "American May Day" seems to be just another excuse to drag out the grill & pollute the air with bar-b-que.

Enjoy Billy Bragg's "There is Power in a Union", based on a 1913 composition by Joe Hill
