For all who work, all who lack work, all the overworked, and the work addicted

There are some great posts out there today in honor of Labor Day, so I am not going to write my own blurb. Check them out.

Juan Cole at Informed Comment cites Carl Sandburg. He also provides a helpful graph for his discussion of kleptocracy.

The Rude Pundit quotes Eugene Debs to remind us all what real Socialists sound like.

Susie Madrak at Crooks and Liars writes "If You Have A Paid Holiday Today, Thank A Union Member."

Sister Ellie quotes Abraham Lincoln (very impressive quotes, too).

Grandmère Mimi has a series of fine aphorisms, a poster, and two prayers.

Margaret has an awesome post.
We have Labor Day to remember those who literally built this nation.... and literally gave their lives....
The Collect of the Day:
Almighty God, you have so linked our lives one with another that all we do affects, for good or ill, all other lives: So guide us in the work we do, that we may do it not for self alone, but for the common good; and, as we seek a proper return for our own labor, make us mindful of the rightful aspirations of other workers, and arouse our concern for those who are out of work; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
