Thread Name: the Little Red Songbook--I.W.W.
Subject: RE: the LITTLE RED SONGBOOK--I.W.W.
Hey ART! What would Big Bill have said if you told him that the richest guy in America would get rich by inventing a machine where old Wobblies can get together and talk about Bertha Thomkins!? Well, the only thing funnier about this funny old world is how I picked up my get out of jail free card. I was a paralegal, on my way to law school. I needed an ID card to get in, and more important, get out of federal prissons to interview inmates. Well.. they photgraphed me, and did all the stuff they do, then let me know my Get Out Of Jail Free card was ready. I needed two peices of ID to pick it up. I only had a drivers licence, a Veit Nam era draft card, which I kept because it said on it, 1AO (objector) and I thought that was me all over, fit but not fitting in, and my old red duccet, the IWW card. Well, the feds wouldnt take my federally issued draft card as ID, as the draft was over, but they accepted the IWW card. Yours in the OBU Larry X 333263
