Happy Birthday!

Founder of the AF of L,

Sam Gompers

was born 1/27/1850
(d.12/13/1924)

        Block hiked back to the city but wasn't doing well
        He said "I'll join the union, the great AF of L".
        He got a job that morning, got fired by the night
        He said, "I'll see Sam Gompers and he'll fix that foreman right!"
        Sam Gompers said, "You see, you've got our sympathy."

                "Mr. Block," by Joe Hill, Little Red Song-book
                (According to Stavis & Harmon, a very successful recruiting song.)

ALSO:
Shah 'Abbas I, the Great was born 1/27/1571 (d1629) (Nothing folkish, just has a very nice name)
