Well spoken. I share with you to understanding that the term "Labor Day" has morphed into a political photo op. You might want to read my Labor Day posting ("The Penultimate Word") about that issue at www.jedword.com.

I read you on a daily basis. Thanks for your creative thoughts.

Using the words "touch labor" instead of "workers" or "employees" serves to distance and disassociate in a way that seems endemic in modern political discourse. Those aren't sad, poor people sitting at home with no hope - no, that's a reduction in Touch Labor!
