Happy May Day!
In several years of recording Dead Socialists, I still haven’t come across one who died on May Day. I hope this is not accidental (comrade).
And, Americans!, for you, as ever, it is Loyalty Day!
(Actually, “as ever” doesn’t seem to be quite right: wikipedia tells me that in 1921 it started out as Americanization Day, which is even funnier.)
Here in Oxford, of course, we have our own reactionary invented traditions.
UPDATE [11.30pm]: Americans! Here is your annual Loyalty Day Proclamation!
