Dear EmailNation Subscriber,

The National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) recently filed a complaint against Boeing for allegedly retaliating against its workers in Washington state for exercising their statutory right to go on strike and collectively bargain. Since then, right-wing pundits and politicians, outraged by the complaint, have attempted to undermine the NLRB's authority. On this week's edition of The Breakdown, labor law expert Catherine Fisk joins DC editor Chris Hayes to counter the persistent misinformation about what the NLRB is legally authorized to do to ensure fairness in the workplace.

All best,
Peter Rothberg, The Nation

THE COOLIDGE YEARS

This article describes one of the KKK's forays into our central Massachusetts town.
Although it was almost 90 years ago, my father and his brothers were part of the townspeople that battled the hooded ones and drove them off, again and again.
By 1927 they had wearied of their little game and not much was heard of their activities after that.
But...we never forgot who they were...and we never forgave what they did!
