Money speaks for money, the devil for his own

John Darnielle sings Billy Bragg.

Man, this is like nirvana.

'There is power in a union', by Billy Bragg, sung by John Darnielle.

And as to the 'Wisconsin' reference: here, here and here.

That is great! Here in Wisconsin, we have been singing "down with the Governor, all workers unite".

Hi Alan!

Excellent. It scans even better if you sing it Bragg-style: "guv'nor".

I was thinking of WI earlier today while reading this LRB article.

I have to say, it didn't make me optimistic... But keep up the good fight!

The article ends:
"Why long-lived acquiescence suddenly gives way to resistance is always a bit of a mystery. But it happens." Be optimistic. There may be the beginning of a movement here.
