Working Class Hero
Our friend Adam Felber has posted this at his website on the writer's strike going on in HollyIslamostanwood. Adam has been writing this season for Real Time with Bill Maher and if you have been watching, most of the big laughs are all lines written by Adam. Well, maybe not all, but he is a damn funny guy. Honk if you support the strike, and honk often.
Elsewhere, Comrade Dave von E. (The E stands for Esq.) checks in with his socialist views.
Elsewhere, There are Naked Authors! who bare their viewpoints!
My inner Frenchman wants to tell you that this is important. Since Reagan crushed the Air Traffic Controllers strike in the early '80's, the Labor movement has struggled. Partly because the movment didn't recognize workers who didn't work with their hands, partly due to corruption, but now, as we move toward a service economy, the inabilty of many working class people to recognize that they are, in fact, working class. They don't own it. But they make it. Tip of the hat to my ol' friend, Karl.
