    and I guess I am emotional but this brought me to tears.  Watching my husband and other working people fight every single day, against enormous odds and in dreadful conditions, albeit not like coal miners, to just survive, makes me frankly resent the fetishistic worship of the military at the exclusion of all the other real heroes in America.

    I am not suggesting one disrespects soldiers.  They, too, are working people in dangerous jobs. But all working people are heroes, all people who struggle in this brutal soul and body destroying system are worthy of our respect.
