Justice For The Rest Of Us

A middle-aged social scientist who started blogging to support social justice and spread the gospel of non-violence. Though it may cost me followers, I will criticize the left when we make mistakes, including resorting to violence when it isn't necessary. Cesar Chavez, who organized disenfranchised migrant workers and Martin Luther King, who not only fought for civil rights but for economic justice, exemplify the principles I espouse here. But make no mistake about it: I am a proud member of the left.

On a personal note, I love Siamese cats, and I'm addicted to baseball. As a public service, I post one cute animal picture everyday. Don't be surprised to see something about music from the 60s every once in a while.

LA Times: The Walton family, which owns Wal-mart, owns aggregate wealth equal to 42 percent of Americans. How did they earn that fortune? Through good old fashioned union busting, and putting American manufacturers out of business while importing goods made by people in sweat shops in China. Oh, and by the way, all of that shipping contributes to environmental degradation.
