Labor Day Open Thread

Happy Labor Day. (Version with Axl Rose here.)

Lets drink to the hard working people
Lets drink to the lowly of birth
Raise your glass to the good and the evil
Lets drink to the salt of the earth

I just noticed that at the very end of the song, Mick tells the audience (the firefighters and police who responded to 9/11):

If there's one thing we learned from this whole experience, it's that "You don't f*ck with New York."

They all cheer loudly (I remember watching the concert live on TV, but they must have bleeped that out.)

This is a photo I took of the Monument to Labor sculpture in Omaha, Nebraska, by Matthew Placzek. (full version here.) It's a tribute to the workers in the labor unions that helped build Omaha and is the second largest labor memorial in the country.

This is an open thread, all topics welcome.
