In spite of solid and unchallenged alibis, Sacco & Vanzetti were executed 8/23/1927. The State maintained they "were morally guilty because they are the enemies of our existing institutions."

[Well, we have the right to protect ourselves, don't we?]

        I was right there in Boston the night that they died.
        I never did see such a sight in my life:
        I thought the crowds would pull down the town
        And I was hoping' they'd do it and change things around.

                "Red Wine," W Guthrie

Nicola Sacco b4/22/1891,
Bartolomeo Vanzetti b6/11/1888

As a dedicated anarchist I've always been a great admirer of Sacco & Vanzetti, but if memory serves me right Upton Sinclair's marvellous book about the case is called 'Boston -- August 22nd' Or am I wrong?

Yes, the book is BOSTON, a wonderful piece of writing.

Sadly, it only brought home to me that where clashes of the rich and the poor are concerned, it is usually only in fiction that the evil are punished and the good are rewarded. Perhaps that is what accounts for the popularity of fiction.

Mark --- Good to hear from another Upton Sinclair admirer. Wasn't it Bernard Shaw who said, 'When people ask me about the times through which I have lived, I direct them to the books of Mr Upton Sinclair'?

Thurber's (? I think it's Thurber) play, "The Male Animal" is an instance of the defense of Sacco & Vanzetti, and of academic freedom, freedom of speech, "Americanism, other good stuff--all hidden in the guise of a comedy about marriage and romance. May be a bit fluffy for serious anarchists, tho'.    Tw
