    Made me think of PATCO, the platonic ideal of anti union action, in Scott Walker's mind.  In the New Yorker article published last winter, he says that Reagan's mass firing of air traffic controllers inspired him.  So I went to Wikipedia to read about the PATCO strike.  Surprising irony: PATCO endorsed Reagan in 1980.
