History is a great teacher. Now everyone knows that the labor movement did not diminish the strength of the nation but enlarged it. By raising the living standards of millions, labor miraculously created a market for industry and lifted the whole nation to undreamed of levels of production. Those who attack labor forget these simple truths, but history remembers them.

I suppose I can always quote Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. twice in one month, can’t I?

This quote is near and dear to my heart for a lot of reasons. Firstly, in the current economic climes I am all too aware of the consequences of the diminished nature  of  the labour movement and secondly, I’m all too well aware of the implications of failing to learn from history…

Right, the update. I found this new software called yWrite. It’s free, has somewhat better (to me, anyway) features and layout compared to Scrivener or MS Word and I think it’s really going to help a lot.

This Is Halloween is finished and will be up tomorrow.

That’s it for this week. Happy Black History Month and I’ll see you next time.
