Sour Milk

Cream rises to the top.  Many are aware of the saying, often delivered in a smug tone, to explain the inevitable emergence of a person into a position of leadership and power.   The words are delivered with an inflection that implies the certainty of the occurrence as well as our daftness for not seeing it […]

Entry Img

It is a measure of our times when the hoopla over a very important union victory is really grounded in the fact that we managed to simply reclaim ground lost in a recent brazen attack on collective bargaining rights in a key state. This week’s 61-39 vote to overturn the draconian Ohio anti-union bill championed by […]

Entry Img

Immigration is the current “hot tamale” in US politics with states passing restrictive legislation faster than Herman Cain can say “I reject all those charges.” We hear so much about our “open” border that we think we own the issue and it’s nice to learn we don’t.  It’s also nice to realize that amidst all […]

This is why our employers have these "no tolerance" policies. The two guys that started this situation have not had their annual sexual harassment and hostile work environment refresher. Anyway the department I just retired from had only three black firefighters out of 110 the whole 21 years I was there. Does that automatically suggest…
