"We cannot rebuild this economy on the same pile of sand," declares the president. But it seems that's what going on. Obama's treasury secretary says, "We have a financial system that is run by private shareholders, managed by private institutions, and we'd like to continue to do our best to preserve that."

Communities of color - already hurting before the lastest round of troubles - have been measuring up the new president as well.

The political trial and hanging of four anarchists that followed sparked protests around the world and the designation by the Second International of May 1 as International Workers' Day, more commonly known as May Day. But does commemoration of a 19th century incident have relevance for people in the 21st century? Does demonstrating on May Day have meaning for you?
