May Day (May 1, 2006)

May 1 is May Day.  This is Law Day, a day to reflect on our heritage of liberty, justice and equality under the law and to celebrate the rule of law in a democracy.  Hundreds of years ago in England, a homeowner behind on his (not her) mortgage could pay the arrears on May 1 and avoid a foreclosure.  This is also International Workers Day.  Workingmen of the world unite and celebrate their rights.  This is also Labor Day in Mexico.  Hispanics are laboring this day by boycotting work and business in support of the first National Day Without Immigrants.  Today is also “Mission Impossible” Day in the United States, a day of mourning to decry Emperor Bush’s proclamation: “Mission Accomplished.”  That it isn’t.  Busy day.
