If foundation folks stayed at home on 9/11, there would be fewer calls going out to grantees hounding them for this or that report. This would be a great shame.

strike

Well, of course the strike won't be really general (meaning: clearly bringing the country to a standstill). However, it can be made very, very noticeable, it is up to you.
If you think some things are wrong, what stops you from organizing and changing then? If nobody did so, or if massive protests were not effective, there would still be very few rights for blacks, women, or workers, to name a few examples.

strike: Nice of you to say that it's up to me. I've seldom felt this important, able to decide the fate of anything so grand as a General Strike. I imagined, stupidly, that the success of this effort might depend on a great deal of ground-laying: grassroots organizing and coalition building -- that kind of thing. Little did I suspect it would lie entirely on my shoulders. Thank you. I feel empowered.

We could have a party. . . with a booby prize for the last person to cross the picket line.

Indeed! Shame on you Albert. Next you'll be proposing ride-sharing as part of the general boycott, good work job actions where possible, work to rule at welfare queen companies and pooling money so that people who stand to be hurt won't have to do without groceries or rent money. You're just the kind, too, to point out that many communities still have moral leadership and that these people should be approached for insights and input. Oh, I can't even believe what I read here sometimes!

The leaves on the trees have been shredded by disease, the sun's arc is lower in the sky, mosquitoes rule the garden. We're tired, Scruggs, we begin to lose perspective this late in the summer.

Nasty Hababbitt

I don't suppose anyone's up for a crucifixion at this late hour? David Blaine?

Phil

I think I will take a vacation day and stroll through Dallas's down town seeing if I can imagine the homeless as on strike. Since the day is mine to take, I will not be out of line. It is part of my compensation package.

Albert

I plan to stay home and dream up some devastating slogans for the next rally.
