In an amazing replay of the Lucan Gospel parable of Dives the rich man who denied the leperous, starving Lazarus the very crumbs from his sumptuous table, Ernest Gallo was sent to hell today for his oppression of poor, migrant grape-pickers who helped to make the generic wine Dives filthy rich.
The Gallo Brothers and their Governor goomba-Ronnie Bonzo Reagan managed to deny farmworkers a living wage, decent benefits, safe working conditions while the millionaire Governor paid no income tax and the Wino-Gallo brothers got loaded!
From his ring of hell, Ernest Gallo called out to Grape-picker Doce Uvas Suerte, in the very lap of Abraham Cesar Chavez: "Hermano, Remenber me your generous employer and dip your finger in some water to quench my thirst in this fiery torment"
Doce would have done so except that Father Abraham reminded his favored son that the distance was so great between the paradise of the earthly poor and the furnace of the worldly uncaring rich that an ocean of water would evaporate before reaching those who never even tried to reach their mistreated employees.
Gallo understood but asked Sr Suerte to warn his bother Julio to change hie selfish ways before he too joined the oppressors in the inferno. Again, Doce would have done so till he was reminded that the resurrection of a really good man has done very little to change the ways of the very greedy. . .
