So, caught a dvr’ed documentary last night: Harlan County, USA

Wife thinks I’m nuts for it, but the UMW and such have always enjoyed great respect in my mind.

Two great heroes in my family - though we haven’t been down the hole since my great-grandfather’s day - were Jock Yablonski (why no one has made a movie about him is more than I’ll ever know), a true martyr to the cause of honest organized labor, and John L. Lewis, another titan of union history.

It’s a funny thing - I’m a Righty, and yet, have always been a Union man.

Which Side are You On?
