This being May Day/Labour day in more than 80 countries, I wrote about May Day and a little known fact - May 1 as an international worker's day / Labour Day started at Haymarket, Chicago, yet it is not celebrated in the US.

Remembering the Haymarket martyrs.

I will have to play catch up this weekend. My sister and niece are visiting from NC, so I'm not doing much writing or commenting. I will be back full force this weekend to get caught up.
