    Great Old Amusement Parks Long before giant theme parks and computer-controlled thrill rides, America was punctuated by beautiful, charming amusement parks where many families gathered for a cool escape on a hot summer day. This program celebrates these pre- Disney parks - some that continue to thrive, as well as a few that are now part of history. It catches a ride on old wooden roller coasters, vintage bumper cars and many other cool classic rides as it looks at amusing amusement park history and discovers what's so special about these amazing places.
    The show visits Playland in Rye, New York, and Kennywood in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania - the only two parks in the country recognized as National Historic Landmarks. At Northern California's Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk, viewers hop on the antique Loeff carousel (circa 1911), where brave riders can still lean out and grab for the "brass ring." The special also travels to Holiday World in Santa Claus, Indiana - a traditional old "themed" amusement park, where sections of the park represent different holidays such as Christmas, Halloween and the Fourth of July. It's one of the few places where people can talk to Santa in August.
    Using his trademark "scrapbook documentary" style, award-winning producer Rick Sebak takes viewers across the country in this wonderful celebration of old wooden and mechanical getaways and the communities that support them. Viewers find out how the parks have changed over the years and how they've remained the same.

    Moyers & Company [#126H] Is Labor A Lost Cause? * Bill opens this week's show by explaining how last week's Supreme Court decision not to reconsider Citizens United exposes the hoax that Citizens United was ever about "free" speech. In reality, Bill says, it's about carpet bombing elections "with all the tonnage your rich paymasters want to buy."
    * Also lost in the Supreme media chatter last week: a disturbing ruling that restricts labor unions from directing collected dues toward political causes. There's no such limit on corporations, naturally - yet another indication that the power and status of modern unions is waning, especially when compared to the unbridled influence of Corporate America. With a sharp decline in union membership, a legion of new enemies, and a series of legal and legislative setbacks, can unions rebound and once again act strongly in the interest of ordinary workers?
    This week Bill talks to two people who can best answer the question: Stephen Lerner and Bill Fletcher, Jr. The architect of the SEIU's Justice for Janitors movement, Lerner directed SEIU's private equity project, which worked to expose a Wall Street feeding frenzy that left the working class in a state of catastrophe. Fletcher took his Harvard degree to the Massachusetts shipyards, and worked as a welder before becoming a labor activist. He served as assistant to the president of the AFL-CIO, and is author of the upcoming book They're Bankrupting Us - And 20 Other Myths About Unions.
    * Later in the show, Bill talks with and invites readings by poet Philip Appleman, whose creativity spans a long life filled with verse, fiction, philosophy, religion... and Darwinism. Appleman's latest collection is Perfidious Proverbs.
