    of McWilliams. You are correct. He would have been a great Kossack.

    I did a diary on the Zoot Suit Riots for Top Comments once. It was really a learning experience for me, as was the Preparedness Day Bombing diary I did for TC. There is so much progressive movement history in California! And I fear many of today's progressives don't realize the groundwork that was laid for them by people like McWilliams and others who were persecuted, prosecuted, blacklisted, framed, beaten, and killed for their progressive beliefs.
