dc740a07-12a2-435e-8f0d-de0d6c87bdd1I had repressed the memory but suddenly recall his wonderful workshop how old a Dartmouth spring of my junior year

Maybe EarthWise productions can bring him out here.

i May be confusing Si Kahn with Saul Alinsky.

he was not too longly up in North Bay for a show about Sarah o gun gunning

edit to add: this just in: there is a Si Kahn play opening this month in Cornelius, North Carolina, “Mother Jones in Heaven“:

I can’t picture making it out to Carolina for this show –although I did take the train from Palo Alto to Raleigh to see Mary Michele Little’s fashion show, but I was so much younger then, I’m older than that now. I did also once see and photograph Mother Jones’ tombstone memorial at the Union Memorial Cemetery in Mount Olive, Illinois – -right on the Route 66 — it’s about 250 miles from Chicago, and equidistant from St. Louis or Springfield.

I cannot locate the digital correspondence of that photo of Mother Jones’ resting place — perhaps a portal to Mother Jones in heaven, but I did find this photo from thereabouts – of a blue sky over the midwestern plane near Atlanta, Illinois (sic):
