Lansing, December 11 2012

I’m on a bus right now headed up to protest Right to work legislation. Roads are closed, the state police hlow their riot gear out. The buses are filled retirees who are coming in force to defend the gains that allowed them the chance to retire with dignity. Now that right, indeed, the very right to self-determination is under attack. Emergency managers replace elected officials. Right to work replaces right to organize. These are the times that try men’s souls. More later. As my mother says, “See you at the barricades!”
