  1. Columbus wrote in his log about the Arawaks that greeted him: “…They would make fine servants… With 50 men we could subjugate them all and make them do whatever we want” (Howard Zinn).

    Substitute Arawaks/”them” for teachers and other public employees; substitute “Columbus” for Rahm E.; now substitute “Columbus” for Illinois legislators; substitute “them” for teachers.

    Columbus’ expeditions were the original templates for slaves and greed in this country. Today is a celebration for the Robber Barons’ terrorism.

  2. Howard was a great man so unappreciated hopefully he will be recognized soon. When that happens it will signal that we as a nation have become all that we now claim to be but are not.
