Who is Tom Joad?

Wingnuts all over the internet are pulling out their copies of "Atlas Shrugged" and threatening to "Go Galt" and sporting "Who is John Galt" tshirts at anti-stimulus protests. Today at the book store I decided I'd call their literary references from a liberal perspective, I picked up a copy of "The Grapes of Wrath" a book I haven't read since high school.

I took a wonderful history class senior year at Fort Lewis College called "American History of the 1920s and 30s". I did my final research paper on Woody Guthrie and protest/labor songs of that era. A good friend of mine who was also in the class did his paper on Grapes of Wrath. Best class I ever took. Great book, I've read it several times.
