Happy May Day. Workers of the world unite. Today is a bay area General Strike, many coordinated actions to stand against, slow down, or stop the powers that be / the 1%. Here is a schedule of today's events. Hopefully I will be able to get enough grading done to make the evening rally, though the literature says to stop everything I would normally  do. Yet there is a stack of student papers that I need to read to stay on schedule, both my schedule and the schedule of making money for the for-profit institution I'm working for. Somebody is honking a horn, somebody else is speaking on a bullhorn, and a helicopter keeps buzzing around. It's ironic and hypocritical and doesn't make any sense but I have to break eggs to make omelets. How best to revolt?
