Our friend Milo sent some material he felt could be used as sidebars for his own Web page or, possibly, for commentaries.
Swans is happy to oblige.
Samuel Gompers, a founder of the American Federation of Labor, in Chicago on 28 August 1893 asked: "What does labor want?" It wants the earth and the fullness thereof. There is nothing too beautiful, too lofty, too enobling unless it is within the scope and comprehension of labor's aspirations and wants. "We want more schoolhouses and less jails; more books and less arsenals; more learning and less vice; more constant work and less crime; more leisure and less greed; more justice and less revenge; in fact, more of the opportunities to cultivate our better natures and to make childhood more joyful, womanhood more beautiful and manhood more noble."Here too Swans would be happy to oblige.
Have a good weekend.
