Hello everyone in the "Support of Labor" group.  I haven't seen anything in the group about this post - or the fact that it may be a little late, but last week we lost a fighter in the class war.  MentaMark - Mark Haller - suffered a heart attack last week and passed away.  Mike Elk wrote an obituary for Mark in In These Times.  I didn't know Mark personally, but he was someone who enjoyed our blog, The Raging Chicken Press, and someone who was always available to talk to online.  We spent times talking about Occupy Erie, Occupy Philly or Wall Street and about the labor movement.  I didn't know Mark, but he's someone who will be missed.

Rest in Peace Mark

Edit - I would really advise everyone to read Mike Elk's obituary.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
