Recovering from the trek, Odin's Day

The drive back and the heat have combined to render me feeling tired, lazy, drowsy.

For now, I'll just rest and divide my early evening time between AlterNet's "Start Making Sense" and Clive Barker's Imajica.

The whole flap about the split of the AFL-CIO according to NPR seems to have missed a valuable point: the split occurred precisely because Sweeney and the power structure within the confederated unions failed to respond adequately to anti-union forces. The fact that only 12% of the American labor force shows that Sweeney and his supporters have failed to defend workers' interests enough, vis a vis Right to Work states, jobs moving to overseas firms, outsourcing, and other phenomena of globalism.

Now I've had enough of the internet until maybe come the witching hour, or the inky pre-dawn blackness. Aloha!
