Assorted Links N At...


Been tired and busy. Here's the last several things I posted on Facebook:

Pennsylvania Teacher Starts 100-Mile-Run To Protest ‘Catastrophic’ Education Cuts  I've been knocking on doors and reading up on this issue. It's true. How can we be number one at anything if we don't have a population that has critical thinking skills? It's as if our Galtian Overlords, so to speak, are using "Idiocracy" as a blueprint for the American future...

Activists protest Hershey in Times Square, calling on chocolate giant to stop using child labor (I wonder how my IUP admissions office friend Connie McNamara could spin this...probably fairly well and I'm guessing that she will be well compensated for it...)
Fight the three strikes rule. Looks like this will just be done unilaterally by private companies. Does this include wi fi spots? Related: The Software Kings are the true meritocracy. I can only hope that they've bought off enough congresspeople.


Altered pic at rally Sunday against the Pittsburgh Pirates Delaware Loophole tax dodge...

Here's a crazy question: why doesn't labor run labor organizers for serious office statewide? Why don't you run this guy, who seems to have integrity, for Wagner's seat instead of a lame corporate dem like Dan Onorato--who ran a terrible campaign (I swear he was spitting on me in one of his ads..)...is the integrity the problem?

Update: Press release here. Looking for news coverage. Nothing at the papers and I'll expect it will remain that way for the Tribune Review. Hard for tv crews to do much except the major and petty crimes of proles and car crashes. I'll look...

Something funny (my opinion anyway) I posted to the One Pittsburgh wall over at Facebook...

I'm going to post some pics of the rally later tonight. Now that I don't have to worry about waking up at 4 in the morning to go to another job. Here's some screen grabs. Just squint carefully.
