Here’s a surprise for all of my Chicago readers (i.e., Jeff and the Church Secretary). A column in the Sun-Times informs that SEIU, the Laborers, and the CFL are preparing a political assault on the Chicago City Council. Mayor Daley may even be in the crosshairs. The reasons? Well, you live it so I don’t have to go into details. How long were the Firefighters working without a contract? But, hey, this could be a lot of fun. When was the last time Chicago city politics was truly contested?
In other good news, the California special election has turned out to be a victory for the labor movement. Schism, apparently, has not doomed us. At least not so far.
And another thing: there was a recent poll claiming that a majority of Americans favored impeaching the Prez if he lied about going into Iraq. Can’t find the link, but it was done by some reputable agency, Zogby I think.
