Labor Day 2013 Special

Added bonus: 5 reminders of the day’s real purpose
The mass of mankind has not been born with saddles on their backs, nor a favored few (born) to ride them.
Thomas Jefferson
Letter to Roger C. Weightman
June 24, 1826
Labor is prior to, and independent of, capital. Capital is only the fruit of labor, and could never have existed if labor had not first existed. Labor is the superior of capital, and deserves much the higher consideration.
Abraham Lincoln
State of the Union Address
December 3, 1861

Added bonus:  Check out this morning's "chewy" op-ed piece, for one columnist's perspective about how today's important U.S. holiday has been "corrupted":
Happy Labor Day, O Gentle Ones.
