  •  Carlo Tresca: leader, martyr, hero. (6+ / 0-)

    Per Wiki,

    ...newspaper editor, orator, and labor organizer who was a leader of the Industrial Workers of the World during the decade of the 1910s. Tresca is remembered as a leading public opponent of fascism, Stalinism, and Mafia infiltration of the trade union movement. Tresca was assassinated by a Mafia gunman in 1943.
    A brave man and an example to us all.  (Looked good in a goatee, too.)

    Great diary, as always, JayRaye.  You're on my blogroll, BTW.

    A slower bleed-out is not a sustainable value.
