If I'm ever sued, this site will go up for sale for the amount of damages sought, along with posting any documents I receive. If you think you can copyright a letter you send to me, go for it.
I'm still learning about blog design and I've found a problem when viewing this blog. It does not behave properly in small browser windows and if your display resolution is less than 1280 pixels wide and/or you are viewing the blog in a window less than 980 pixels blog wide, the right side bar is pushed below any visible post. I've searched the web and looked at the code for hours but can't find the problem. My next step, when I get the time, is to recreate the blog with a new template. Advice is appreciated.

LV Sun Interviews with Andy Stern and John Wilhelm

I follow The Union Label Blog and in the last week, WTH has posted Las Vegas Sun interviews with Andy Stern, boss of the Service Emplyoees International Union (SEIU) and John Wilhelm, who with Bruce Raynor, teamed up to form UNITE HERE, a merger between the textile and hotel workers.

The marriage between Wilhelm and Raynor came apart and in stepped Andy to try and pick the bones clean. I think they all ought to meet in the parking lot - last man standing seems like a good way to solve the problems.

What was interesting to me (among other things, of course) is an Andy Stern's statement in his interview with the Sun:

"We spent a fortune to elect Barack Obama - $60.7 million to be exact - and we're proud of it"

WOW - that's a lot of members money but one might ask: is that even close to what it takes to buy a president? I don't know what the going rate is these days so I can't answer the question. Seems pretty low to me.

Here's hoping that Mr. Stern and the SEIU members get what they paid for.
