    Ms. Loschen, you are talking about a prairie fire. Those Great Plains are where the Progressive Movement really took hold in the 1910s, 20s & 30s. Linked and joined with the Labor Movement in the mill towns and cities.

    thanks for your wonderful, rhythmic description... lots and lots of very smart people in dKos-land; many have gaps in their historical knowledge base (me included).

    Hope is, after all, the currency of popular politics, and a coin surprisingly hard to devalue. -- Fred Anderson, Crucible of War
