Dear Readers: If you are laboring on this Labor Day, the Goddess of Capitalism hopes that you are being profitable. Today has been designated “Empty Chair Day“. Professor Jacobson over at Legal Insurrection is celebrating, by publishing pictures from around the county featuring empty chairs. This has been a clever extension of the “Eastwooding” Twitter campaign that began in the wake of Clint Eastwood speech at the Republican National Convention.
