From 11:00PM PDT on Friday, July 1 until 5:00AM PDT on Saturday, July 2, the Shmoop engineering elves will be making tweaks and improvements to the site. That means Shmoop will be unavailable for use during that time. Thanks for your patience!
Willy Feeley used to be a friend of the Joad family. Now he works for the landowners, and he drives the tractor that destroys the tenant farmers' homes, that runs families out of town. He gets paid well, and even gets a bonus if he "accidentally" bumps into a house as he plows into the fields.
