Union Made

AFSCME has been on strike at the university. You probably know this already, but if you don’t, it’s over the amount of correction to their pay it will take to bring them on par with other state employees and how future planned raises will keep up with inflation — at least that’s how I understand it.

However, I did manage to have a lot of fun. For instance, I contracted the avian bird SARS flu:

I was so excited by the discovery of Alec Soth’s blog that I neglected to notice that I had misheard his name. Apparently there is no “x” in it anywhere. He (or his agents) even visited this site three times and I had the wrong name twice. Don’t I feel dumb.
