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.)
