This Saturday a group of us are gathering to rededicate the Studs Terkel Bridge, which is a working man's bridge to give all other working men's bridges a bad case of tetanus.
This week in this space we're going to contemplate excerpts from Working, the 1972 Studs Terkel book that laid tongue to my suspicion that making one's work meaningful was the best favor you could do for yourself.
"You can't eat for eight hours a day nor drink for eight hours a day nor make love for eight hours a day," Terkel quotes William Falkner, "—all you can do for eight hours a day is work."
So this week, we'll talk about work.
