Labor Day

As Tom Morrello reminded me yesterday, it's also important to remember that we celebrate labor day in September because Grover Cleveland was worried a holiday in May would rile up people's emotions about the Haymarket Massacre.

It's also worth noting that the Haymarket riot started as one of many nationwide rallies in support of super radical and anti-business 8 hour work day.
