Yes, stupid me. There are no other things in life to occupy my mind. I should be focused like a laser on the history of unionizing in the Appalachians. WTF was wrong with me? I mean, I have my nerve trying to engage in a little discussion based on the information I have gleaned from the little time I have devoted to the subject. Yes, this should have been chief among my concerns and I should have already researched the topic before trying to ask questions and engage in a discussion with strangers on the internet.
You're what's wrong with discourse, jerk.
