#1 Today's ChiTrib had a cartoon with the money shot being "It's Only A Twinkie." Typical lib gloss-over of the people looking at a more uncertain future (Granted that some may be deserving)....

#3 What to do with those 18,000 unemployed Irish bakers ?

Well....they're a restless, troubled lot. We could offer them cash and whiskey for a 90 day enlistment. Form them into regiments led by politicians, and march on "right to work" states.....

#4 The saddest thing is only 6000 of the 18000 are in the striking union. They took 2 other employees out with each of them.
Look for the union label.

#5 Support business also took a hit. Many more than the 18500 figure will lose on this. I still say retirements are probably underfunded. I know 200 out of the fortune five hundred are underfunded.
Training offered but for what industry?. Who is hiring?.

#8 Its official - never mind the hoopla about 2015, its Civil War in Amerikka in 2014.

And thus Virginia, we learn once again why any advice + warnings from our long-dead or pre-dead ancestors should never be ignored or downplayed -GOD LOVES THE TWINKIE!
