just call me a liberal
In honor of Labor Day, treehugger.com ran a quote from Samuel Gompers, one of the big (and somewhat silly-sounding) names of the Labor movement. I thought it was worth sharing.
What does labor want? We want more schoolhouses and less jails; more books and less arsenals; more learning and less vice; more leisure and less greed; more justice and less revenge; in fact, more of the opportunities to cultivate our better natures, to make manhood more noble, womanhood more beautiful, and childhood more happy and bright.

Gompers Elementary (just down the road) is named after Samuel Gompers. Fun fact for ya, I guess. I like the quote, sir.
