Finally!

Well it looks like the MTA strike is finally over. Maybe life will get back to normal now.

This strike had me thinking back to the last work stoppage in Major League Baseball. Man, the whole process really does suck. Because in the end, it's the customers (US!) who get screwed each time. I understand that unions were needed back in the 1920s and 1930s when civil rights barely existed. People were exploited and needed protection. But do MLB players need protection? When the average salary is $1 million? Or do the MTA workers need additional protection when they have retirement benefits kicking in at the age of 55 and some of the best fringe packages around? I don't think so.

Well anyway, it's all over. I'll recoup and get back to baseball. Hopefully I'll have at least one, if not both, of my interviews up by tomorrow evening.
