Apologies - and kudos - to the Northwest Arkansas Times

Posted By on Mon, Sep 5, 2011 at 10:37 PM

In my hasty reading of the editorial pages this morning I neglected to notice the side piece in the Northwest Arkansas Times by Richard Trumka, president of the AFL-CIO -“Have a Safe Labor Day.”

Good for you, NWA Times.

Trumka's piece on safety and why regulations can be good for us was more inspiring than the depressing Randian twaddle in the ADG.

Let’s hope this isn’t just a Labor Day Special, but the beginning of something.
