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.)

    Wait! Postpone tax reform and everything else for a while longer because the Senate is going to try to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act one more time before September ends and while it can do it with the votes of only 50 senators.
  • Sex on campus

    Look, the Great Campus Rape Crisis was mainly hype all along. What Vice President Joe Biden described as an epidemic of sexual violence sweeping American college campuses in 2011 was vastly overstated.
