"In re Debs" - the 1895 railroad-strike case that may control the Texas abortion dispute

Play Episode Listen Later Oct 30, 2021 12:18


In 1895, the Supreme Court affirmed a contempt conviction against Eugene Debs, the leader of a nationwide strike by railroad workers. The conviction arose from a federal-court injunction, obtained by federal prosecutors to prevent private actors from infringing on activity protected by the U.S. Constitution. Both the United States and the State of Texas rely on that opinion, In re Debs, in the ongoing litigation about the constitutionality of the new Texas abortion statute. The strength of the analogy between the Texas case and Debs  will form an important part of the opinion that the Supreme Court ultimately reaches about that law.

We here at the ole' AML Network constantly strive to bring you all of the latest up to the minute news in the world of model railroading. Unfortunately, we don't think that's actually ever happened except for once, when “Kelly” drove off his driveway and give us an on-the-spot report, but all he said over and over is that he's the safety officer for the Medford Railroad Park. This podcast is over a year old, but fortunately we keep all our podcasts in the fridge, so they have that just recorded freshness. It's another exciting round of the Kelly Questions so you the listener can learn as much about our next victim errr… I mean guest. So, grab yourself a big bowl of shredded newspapers, a tall cool glass of printing ink and enjoy!!

When it comes to the world of model railroading our next guest literally needs no introduction after decades in the hobby, literally hundreds of articles, different magazines edited under his watchful eye, a monthly column read by tens of thousands, Tony Koester is simply an icon in the hobby. An alumnus of Purdue University, co-founder of the Nickel Plate Historical Society and some would say along with his good friend Allen McClelland, he popularized the idea of proto-freelancing. This is part one of a five-part series in which Tony graciously takes the time to answer our questions, tell great stories and give us his “Trains of Thought.” Enjoy !!
