  • Thank you for all you do

    “A hundred times every day I remind myself that my inner and outer life depend on the labors of other men, living and dead, and that I must exert myself in order to give in the same measure as I have received and am still receiving.”

  • Dispatch New Mexico - Labor in the U.S.A

    Blue collar, white collar, it doesn’t matter. They’re both collars.

    I’m referring, of course, to the workplace, where so many of us are little more than dogs on a leash, going only as far as our masters will let us, digging holes in the yard to bury the bones they throw us.

    Fayetteville Observer, Fayetteville, North Carolina, on public comment to proposed rules governing fracking (Aug. 25):
    After four hours of comments from 85 speakers, the crowd of more than 400 in Sanford for Friday’s public hearing on fracking might agree that the topic raises strong emotions on both sides.
    Policy makers could finish these meetings, say they’ve met their legal obligation to listen, then go ahead with the rules already formulated. But that’s hardly in the best interest of the state.
