Archie Green, R.I.P.

Another true American patriot dies.
After earning a degree in political science from the University of California, Berkeley, Mr. Green decided to throw in his lot with the working class. He joined the Civilian Conservation Corps, working as a road builder and firefighter along the Klamath River and became a shipwright and union activist on the San Francisco waterfront. For the rest of his life, he identified himself first and foremost as a worker and a union member.
As if the working class was a group to "throw" yourself into, as if it was some sort of, dare I say it, lifestyle choice? I wish writers, obit writers, would get this straight.
