    This is so great. Heard it read years ago, but it still rings true. I knew people like those that populate this story. And I miss them, sometimes terribly!!

    This is a send-up of such a specific and mostly forgotten scene – I wonder who’s left to remember it and chuckle? Let alone the triangle shirt-waist factory fire (etc.)that engendered it – now that Maine is trying to bring back child-labor and all the secular Jews are busy protesting the existence of Israel who’s working for the workers? Not a whole lot since they mostly all want each-other dead – the divide and conquer thing’s worked pretty well there.

    Seems worth adding a short list of what those funny old Jews (and Italians and Pete Seeger) got moved through…tee-hee…
