Containing Multitudes Since 2004
Red Emma's mugshot looks soooo much better than any of the current Bush progeny's perp-walk celebratory daguerrotypes. Was this from her visit to San Diego, the then - and sadly, to a large degree now - Western Capital for apoplectic, lick-spittle reactionaries? BCNU
I don't think so. My guess is it's much earlier than that. I have a few Emma mugshots here; the one you're referencing may be one of them.You ask me, it was a bit of waste her living in the period she did. We need someone like her now.Well . . . now that I think of it . . . we always need Emma Goldman.
It's from 1901, when she was arrested after the McKinley assasination. Her experiences through the Woodrow Wilson years were far worse than anything we've faced -- ending, of course, with her deportation. In her final years in Canada, she would go to the Niagra River, gaze across at the United States, and weep.
