Minnesota Public Radio’s web site has pretty good strike coverage, especially over the last couple days. For the first time, I’m seeing real information about the state services that are being affected by the strike. It’s about time; both the state and the unions have failed to highlight those on their own. Note, too, the comments in their little “Soapbox” section. Interesting perspectives.

Bummer, though. Since I first wrote that paragraph, MPR’s taken down a couple articles. Can’t find ’em yet.

Picketers where I work have posted a “rats list.” I’m not on it. Tomorrow morning I plan to make sure I’m added (ever a stickler for details :) and take the opportunity to talk with the picketers to see why they’re striking. I’d very much prefer to hear it from them rather than union leaders.
