Happy New Year

middle-age American living in New Jersey near the Lincoln Tunnel <<<  Sarah Bagley was a New England farm girl who made her way to Lowell, Massachusetts at the beginning of the industrial revolution, Philip Dray in “There is Power in a Union” writes, “she found her voice”.  Industry created a vacuum that sucked people off the farms and working conditions were poor, so labor leadership was demanded, and Ms. Bagley stepped forward.  A farm girl turned urbanite, public speaker and labor leader is a credit to Ms. Bagley – brava.  God willing I will have my hundredth birthday during the first month of 2064, and I predict I will reminisce 2011 as the year I found my voice.  I will transition to the pedicab in the hours ahead, and take a break for dinner and an evening with my wife, and then pedal until most of the drunks are off the streets – Happy New Year >>> since public speaking, and posting internet comments are two things people fear, I created an email account for readers to use for anonymous comments: gmail, username: anonymous2tomdoody, password: anonymous123
