Well I came across this picture by Earl Dotter and it seemed appropriate to post it in honor of the miners who have died on the job lately. They are only the latest casualties. It also seems appropriate as a sort of lament for the unions that are struggling these days. It seems like no one I know supports unions as anything but a necessary evil. One of my favorite bumper stickers - it always makes me smile - says "UNIONS: The folks who brought you the weekend!" True enough. and that ought to get people to re-think the "necessary evil" posiiton. Unions are necessary, period. We stand - or rather, rest - on the shoulders of those like this women who stick by the union. And mostly we don't know or don't care.
