  •  I drove through Nemacolin (7+ / 0-)

    from time to time as I would deliver proofs of our community's monthly newspaper to a printer in Brownsville back in the mid-1980s/early 90s. I was fascinated by the entire area — fascinated and saddened by all of the boarded up shops along the main streets of so many of these little towns.

    Haven't been back there in at least 20 or more years. I hope things have revived a bit. (Loved Nemacolin Castle in Brownsville, too.)

    As for the future of labor, I think one of the best things that could happen in the U.S. would be for all boards of directors to have at least one seat reserved for and filled by a labor representative, as is the case here in Germany as well as in other EU countries. But I'm not holding my breath.
