    Fellow Travelers' Advisory from Anne Feeney - weblog posting
    During my 3-hour layover at O'Hare I may end up being a witness in a grievance procedure filed by 3 United Airlines workers who were actually 'separated from service without pay' (I think that means "fired") for watching me sing nasty songs about their greedy CEO while I was waiting for a plane at O'Hare last May. The workers are charged with refusing a direct order from a supervisor... and the Supervisor's order was -- get this (drum roll, please, maestro) -- "Make her stop singing." Please. Who is going to *make* me quit singing? But they were fired by these humorless incompetent bastards. As my wonderful friend John Handcox used to sing - "There is mean things happening in this land."

    A link from a Goggle search showed that someone writing on this blog in the past new John Handcox, the author of "Roll the Union On" as I did. I am researching John's life because I want to write a Wikipedia entry on him. Incidentally I am also planning to do the same form my old friend Tom Scribner, ex IWW, ex CP/CLP Peace & Freddmom Party, musical saw player and friend of Utah Phillips. If anyone has information on either of them, please get in touch w/ Joseph Drake
