While writing these memories of Powell’s Organizing campaign, one evening I ordered a pizza from Pizzicato. SacialeoRoma is one of my favorite pizzas and is the one I ordered. I picked it up. Driving home I smelled it and remembered the many pizzas in the back of the car during the Powells campaign. Memory of those trips filled the car.
During Powell’s organizing and negotiations there were many many pizza deliveries, via my car. The union team often met with pizza for a meeting or prior to a negotiations session. I bought and brought the pizzas, put them in the back of my car and drove to the meeting. The pizza smell was often in my car the next day. When I got home with the pizza this evening the memory lingered for the rest of the evening.
