Dancing Emma

I was walking across East 7th Street yesterday, when I saw this banner of one-time East Villager Emma Goldman:

Emma Goldman is famous for having said "If I can't dance, I don't want to be part of your revolution."

Looking at that face, though, I'm prone to thinking that people didn't want her to dance because she was so sullen! Can you imagine her on the dance floor, glaring at the band?!

When I got to the end of East 7th Street, at The Bowery, I saw another banner, this time of Che Guevara:

Che Guevara now, I bet he could dance until dawn — even with his asthma!
