  6. MLK’s Call for Economic Justice Posted on Jan 16, 2015 By Eugene Robinson mdgn / Shutterstock.com The Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.’s economic message was fiery and radical.

He saw inequality as a fundamental and tragic flaw in this society, and he made clear in the weeks leading up to his assassination that economic issues were becoming the central focus of his advocacy. Nearly five decades later, King’s words on t
  7. from Time magazine on line https://time.com/3615160/sony-hack-salaries/ there is no mention here of bonuses and other sums they get which some say double the salary or more. of course this article does not go into why the company looses money so that mass layoffs ( at 500 in LA alone) were implemented. its just the nature of what capitalism has become. if you write to the author Sam Frizell please let us know of further information.

  10. a thorough article in the paper of record: http://www.nytimes.com/2014/03/24/business/media/death-raises-on-set-safety-questions.html?_r=0 and Hollywood of course has full blown ADD meaning memory is erased every day: .... John Landis, the director of the anthology film’s prologue and the segment affected by the accident, and four co-workers were tried for manslaughter. They were acquitted, but the trial shook the film industry, and might have curtailed the authority of swashbuckling directors, who found themselves more closely watched by safety monitors.
