five mile road




our cousin wendy sent us beautiful pictures she's taken, over several years, of the road though our family land in michigan. following our cousin's lead, christina's been investigating a contract with the state to keep our portion of the land undeveloped in it's natural state- in effect, as a sanctuary. more on this later.

workers unite!














boston. international workers day. even in the current situation, as working people- mostly the middle class- are rapidly loosing power and wealth to those who have more, i never feel more jazzed about my country than when i see people freely taking to the streets to bitch about it! ha! i, and most of those pictured here, are in this for the unions, collective bargaining, immigration reasonableness (and red and black outfits!) the band, the haymarket martyrs, and the art below are from bread and puppet. http://breadandpuppet.org/ photos by me and e rasmussen.

mayday makes me think about communism and socialism. glen e. friedman posted this famous (but dry) essay on socialism by albert einstein.

a few days later he posted this (impassioned!) "rebuttal."
more activist marching bands- honk.
