  •  Hi Joe and Bluesters! Excellent roundup, sorry to (7+ / 0-)

    be sorta "late to the party," LOL!

    Having a bit of a problem with a new laptop (and I'm sure that I'm probably the only human who has not moved on to a tablet, or whatever the newest gadget is).

    Haven't read everything, yet, but was very disturbed to see the piece about the UAW!!!

    What on earth could their strategy be?  

    Sounds to me like partisan politics at play--the union rank-and-file members be d*mned (pardon my French)!

    I am really sorry to hear this, especially considering the declining union membership rolls.  However, I think it's fair to say that they are bringing much of this upon themselves (if they keep this kind of thing up).

    Hope everyone had a nice Easter (long) weekend--we sure did!

    Oh, saw the first "ice cream truck" of the season.  And the weather was absolutely gorgeous every day!!!

    •  evening mollie... (5+ / 0-)

      i'm not ready to move to a tablet, either.  i like a larger screen and a bigger keyboard.  guess i'm officially a fogey. B)

      i was a bit surprised at the afl-cio's strategy, too.  perhaps they don't like their chances with the nlrb or an executive process, seeing as obama has never been exactly interested in supporting labor beyond lip service near election time.  i can't imagine that congress is going to be all that much more receptive.  i'd speculate that their best bet is to find a way to get their complaint in front of a judge.

      •  Exactly--and even laptops allow one to dock them, (1+ / 0-)

        and connect to nice large monitors.  (We favor business laptops that are sturdy, and "soup up" the graphics, hard drive, etc., a little bit in order to compensate.)

        Yeah--Congress sure won't be any help, especially in an election year, when our "conservadems" are busy running to the right!

      I am working just off of 24 and assigned one of the young guys to listen for the ice cream truck.  I could go for a toasted almond bar, tiger tail, Nutty Buddy, ....
