Thanks Tom. I rooooly like Eugene Debs heaps!
Can you get the quote where he says something like:
"Where there is a labouring class, I am of it.
Where there is a impoverished class, I am of it.
Where there is a criminal class, I am of it.
Wherever there are people struggling, prostituting, fighting stealing
homeless.. [you get the idea] I am there."
Probably nothing too close to the real quote, but I'd like someone to
