For The Daily Beast: Requiem for a Union Boss in His America

In Mike Barnicle’s latest column for The Daily Beast, he writes about the beloved Boston firefighter and union leader Mike Mullane, who died recently at age 68. Mullane was the longest serving member of the International Association of Fire Fighters.
