Look for the union libel

Posted By on Tue, Jun 2, 2009 at 8:52 PM

Surprise. Employers that have had unpleasant labor relations are lobbying members of Congress from Arkansas to vote against the Employee Free Choice Act. City Director Michael Keck (R-St. Vincent Infirmary) was on the lobbying team. I suspect he found a receptive audience.

(Been meaning to report on my visit to St. Vincent emergency room over Memorial Day weekend. Nice folks. Quick and courteous service. Cut a big gash on my arm in a slip on a wet deck. Blew it off. Looked at it next morning and said, 'dang, that's a huge wound.' Went to ER. Doc looked at it, said, "Needs stitches, but you waited too many hours. Could get infected." Got a tetanus shot. Nurse cleaned wound, wrapped it and gave me a tube of Neosporin. Said, see my doc next day. Bill: About $725. Wonder what stitches would have cost.)

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
