A Great Day In Seattle, Washington—Everyday Has Value

It was a great day today in Seattle, Washington.

You can see from the picture that I’m telling you the truth.

I’m sorry that you were not here to enjoy the day.

I don’t know that I would have wanted you with me. I need some peace.

But I’m certain that you work hard and thst you also merit a nice day at the ocean.

The good news is that no matter where you are, everyday has value and purpose.

Unfairly Fired Shirley Sherrod Says The Real Issue Is Class

I read a story in the July 22 USA Today about unfairly fired U.S Agriculture Department employee Shirley Sherrod.

This is the woman fired because a right-wing blogger took comments she made about issues of race out of context.

I often do read USA Today. I’ve been gettiing the paper of late delivered at the door of my hotel room in Seattle. I’m in that hotel room right now writing this blog post.

In the USA Today article, Ms. Sherrod says that the real issue is not about race but “about the poor vs. those that have.”

Damn right. I could not agree more. I wish some of our fellow working people could see the facts as clearly as does Ms. Sherrod.
