The Passing of Yet Another Member of the Old Guard - Studs (1912-2008)

It seems somewhat fitting that Studs departs us on Halloween. A true man of the people, he'll have one more opportunity to dance with the damned and bedevil the complacent, the fat-cats, the oligarchs. Too bad he didn't live to witness the election of Obama. Farewell sweet prince.

You Nazis and you fascists
tried to boss this world by hate;
He fought my war the union way
and the hate gang all got beat;
This world was lucky to see him born.
- Woody Guthrie

Working is the amound the most influential books I have ever read. It was the first book I read in graduate school at UMD. Outstanding!
