Last night I went out to Brooklyn for a meeting at the Community
Bookstore for my friend George Scialabba who was there to promote his
new book "Low Dishonest Decades: Essays & Reviews, 1980-2015" that was
structured as a Q&A with him and Doug Henwood.
Doug and George tend to be a lot more pessimistic than me so I made a
comment about the growth of Philly Socialists and a left wing in DSA,
etc. Just after I spoke, a woman sitting beside me who had been a union
official for 35 years spoke about encouraging signs herself. She
mentioned that there's a feminist group in NY that is largely made up of
young woman with weekly meetings averaging 40-50 but at the first one
following Trump's inauguration, 600 women showed up.
Somethings going on...
