A discussion at work yesterday about the annual Spam Museum festival caused me to remember my dear departed friend Val. Sometime in the early '90s, we went to see that documentary about the Hormel strike, American Dream, which is pretty brutal. Val, who was an activist to the core, was so pissed by the end. Her battle cry: "Let's go to the Rainbow and snap all the keys off the Spam cans!" You go, girl.
We did see the movie on a doubled bill with Incident at Oglala, so I guess we were asking for trouble. I miss you, girlfriend.
