      A couple of years ago, a bunch of us were doing some informational picketing in front of the District offices - we weren't on strike, just showing the bosses that we had the capability - when a couple of cop cars pulled up.  Had to help steel the nerves of a couple of the newbies; they had never been arrested before, and were thinking in terms of Haymarket Square or the Homestead Strike.

      Turns out there was nothing to worry ourselves over - the police had seen some fellow union folks out standing up for ourselves out in the cold, and were bringing us coffee and donuts.
