Arise, ye workers!

As previously noted, today is May Day, which since 1889 has been recognized around the world as International Workers Day. And that means it's time for my traditional salute to the proletariat:

Servile mases, arise!

Here in the United States, May 1 has since the 1950s been known as Loyalty Day. But the White House has yet to release a Loyalty Day proclamation this year, so maybe they've decided to set aside this particular relic of the McCarthy era. Seems unlikely, since symbolic gestures and agitprop are what the Bush administration is all about, but one never knows. And even if the White House fails to issue a proclamation, at least the VFW is on the case.
