I was on David Shuster’s show last week talking about the late unpleasantness. Shuster named me “Activist of the Week,” so that was pretty cool. Unfortunately, I really managed to garble some wording here, but I’m no professional. Although it is actually kind of like my teaching style, where I stumble around with words for the first 5 seconds before going on in a coherent and driven way for the next 7 minutes. Also, the lighting in my in-laws’ basement makes me look really bald. It’s the lighting, I swear.

    You could have borrowed Farley’s hat–he wasnt using it . . .

  2. Erik Loomis:

    He’s been trying to convince me of the necessity of hats for years now.

    This is somewhat off topic, but what happened to the This Day in Labor History Post dealing with the 2 January 1905 Chicago conference which helped plan the 27 June 1905 conference founding the IWW? Did I miss it somehow?

  5. Erik Loomis:

    Are you chiding me for not writing the posts you want me to write?

  6. zombie rotten mcdonald:

    I always have difficulty taking Shuster seriously because he looks so much like Jimmy Kimmel, and I keep expecting Ben Stein or Adam Carolla to pop in….

  7. J. Otto Pohl:

    No chiding, just wondering why there is not a post about this event in labor history.

  8. Uncle Ebeneezer:

    Shrill! ;)

  9. Hogan:

    He may have some higher priorities at the end of the fall semester and the onset of the winter holidays than writing labor history posts for LGM.

  10. J. Otto Pohl:

    There is always time for solidarity. ;-)

    Your interview persona is so much less contentious than your blogging persona.

  12. Peter Hovde:

    “Contentious” being, for me, a compliment.
