"If Freedom's road seems rough and hard,
  And strewn with rocks and thorns,
 Then put your wooden shoes on, pard,
  And you won't hurt your corns,
 To organize and teach, no doubt,
  Is very good--that's true,
 But still we can't succeed without
  The Good Old Wooden Shoe."

 - from the song Liberty Forever, sung to the Anvil Chorus, by labour
   organizer and today's birthday boy Joe Hill.  Hill was born Joel Emmanuel
   Haggland on October 7, 1879 in Gavle, Sweden.  [the "wooden shoe" (in
   French, sabot) Hill refers to is the tool of industrial sabotage. -eds.]
