1. Happy International Workers Day to those outside the US, socialists, anarchists, and Wobblies. I’m no Red but I enjoy the results of the labor reform movement every time there’s a weekend.

2. And happy Beltane to all the neo Celts, pagans, and hippies. It marks the halfway point between the spring equinox and the summer solstice and it’s the beginning of summer–plus you can leave anonymous floral gifts for your friends. Those Druids knew where it was at.
