insightful irreverent compassionate
The image of the oxygen-tank-tethered woman who refused to quit singing her Patsy Cline karaoke, a woman whose health had been used up by her employers, became for me the icon of Scots-Irish/white-trash resistance to disposal by corporate-run America.
I don't think I have heard Fred Stella's reading before. I was a bit disconcerted by what I perceived as the inconsistency of his accent, which I suppose was to sound like Joe Bageant's.
I was moved by Bageant's sense of loss when he realized that his old buddy no longer questioned the system that was impoverishing him.
It was sad to hear that Joe Bageant died recently. I hope his other writings will be made available on Audible.
