Abstract

Justin Taylor Percy took Intro to U.S. Labor History for an elective in the spring of his sophomore year. The professor's name was Leon Pitzer, an embittered pinko genius with a marked limp. In him Percy knew he had finally found the father surrogate he'd been searching for since arriving at Schmall, a semi-elite liberal arts college in a town of the same name in the heart of the heart of Ohio. Percy changed his major from English to history, and over the following three semesters took every course Pitzer offered. Too, Pitzer directed Percy's senior thesis, an inspired treatise on the American government's illegal 1921 deployment of the Air Force to bomb striking mine workers at Blair Mountain, West Virginia.

They both cried, but later, recounting the story to Andy on the porch over nightcap beers while Kat slept, Percy tried to make it sound like only Kat had cried. Andy knew the truth because his bedroom was across the hall from Kat's and he'd been listening in. ``I just don't get what the
