Labor Quote of the Day: Woody Guthrie
"You struck a match and in the blaze that started,
You pulled the triggers of your gatling guns,
I made a run for the children but the fire wall stopped me.
Thirteen children died from your guns."
- from Guthrie's song Ludlow Massacre, about the Colorado state militia's attack on a striking coal miners' camp (see Today's Labor History)
