Having seen the obituaries of Kirkland in both the NY Times and the Wall Street Journal, why do I get the impression that he was much more enthusiastic about organizing Polish workers than he was over organizing American ones?

Having presided over the decline of the AFL-CIO into virtual irrelevance, it is perhaps not surprising that the leading media spokespersons for big capital are mourning his passing.
