They should do it on 4/1, which would be more appropriate. Unions have become a parody of themselves. In 1911, they were fighting for a 6 day workweek and an end to abhorrent working conditions. In 2011, they are fighting against, God forbid, actually having to pay towards their Cadillac healthcare plans and unsustainable pensions.
Whoever fights monsters should see to it that in the process he does not become a monster. And if you gaze long enough into an abyss, the abyss will gaze back into you.
