It’s almost 2012 – another gottverdammt election year – and I don’t know if I’ll live through it. The political commercials alone will probably give me an ulcer, if not a coronary.
So, for Labor Day, here’s something a little closer to my core beliefs: the old international workers’ anthem, the “Internationale.” conducted by Arturo Toscanini. I find it soothing.
Arise, ye victims of oppression!
And happy Labor Day.
