Labor Day blog: Arturo Toscanini conducts “The Internationale”


It’s almost 2012 – another gottverdammt election year – and I don’t know if I’ll live through it. The political commercials alone will probably give me an ulcer, if not a coronary.



So, for Labor Day, here’s something a little closer to my core beliefs: the old international workers’ anthem, the “Internationale.” conducted by Arturo Toscanini. I find it soothing.



Arise, ye victims of oppression!



And happy Labor Day.
