Celebrating labor on Labor Day, Tennessee Ernie Ford-style

The nation's economy may still be in the crapper, but our corporate masters let us take Labor Day off anyway -- and bless them for it. The Latest Word will be back tomorrow with the usual gusher of content. In the meantime, those of you who are also enjoying a break from your job can sit back and enjoy listening to Tennessee Ernie Ford sing "16 Tons," the ultimate lament about work without end, Amen. See you again tomorrow.
