Endorsing Work

In "The Day After Labor," Mark Steyn has some interesting reflections on Labor Day (or Labour Day--"you can't spell labour without you.") Along with presenting some frightening thoughts on a present and future increasingly devoid of honest work, Mark neatly summarizes his point:
"Labor Day is an appropriate occasion on which to reflect upon the dignity of work and self-sufficiency and its indispensability to a civilized society."
Written with his usual acerbic wit, "The Day After Labor" is a good read--especially if you hold a job and work hard. To all American workers from sea to shining sea, Happy Labor Day.
