Quotes

"This has been my dream since I can remember as a child — wanting to own my own business" says Roy. After the spill, business was OK, but then the moratorium was enacted while the government overhauled offshore drilling regulations...
"I think most people consider Labor Day an end-of-summer three-day weekend," Papke, a law professor at Marquette University, said in an interview. "Very few Americans stop to reflect on the working man, on labor, on the union movement or any of those things."
"Only a few weeks ago, in Beverly Hills one night, a husband and wife passed me, walking their dog. … The woman held in one hand a small cigarette-package-sized radio, its antenna quivering. From this sprang tiny copper wires which ended in a dainty cone plugged into her right ear. There she was, oblivious to man and dog, listening to far winds and whispers and soap-opera cries, sleep-walking, helped up and down curbs by a husband who might just as well not have been there."
...As the leader of the later Porters Strike, A Philip Randolph said, "Justice is never given; it is exacted and the struggle must be continuous for freedom is never a final fact, but a continuing evolving process to higher and higher levels of human, social, economic, political and religious relationship."
