In view of what's been stirring in Wisconsin, and spreading to other states, and the unprecedented verbal attacks on teachers spewing out of Fox News and talk radio, and the wholly skewed values of the contemporary GOP that glorify banksters and vilify public workers, a reader has shared an original verse added to the old organizing song, "Solidarity Forever":
It is we who teach the classes, hold the workshops in the schools,
Go to conferences and meetings to expand our thoughts and tools.
Yet now we are reviled, told we're nothing more than fools,
But united we are strong.
Solidarity Forever, etc.
