    In the comments to the article someone asked where is Molloy from – California? Nope, Butte.

  2. Barb Rupers,

    I’d bet that Judge Molloy grew up in Butte back in the day when local folks did not believe corporations were their friends and that the union was your protection against corporate exploitation.

Quote

‎"At some point we must draw a line across the ground of our home and our being, drive a spear into the land and say to the bulldozers, earthmovers, government and corporations, “thus far and no further.” If we do not, we shall later feel, instead of pride, the regret of Thoreau, that good but overly-bookish man, who wrote, near the end of his life, “If I repent of anything it is likely to be my good behaviour."

~ Edward Abbey
