“I don’t think people here really understood that the work we had been promised was contingent on ratification,” Sterling Axle UAW member Brian Pannebecker told the Detroit News re: the union’s rejection of a new Ford contract. As my step-daughter Sasha is wont to say, “Wow.”

    Ronnie Schreiber : If a company thinks a proposed contract is in its best interest, it should promote that with advertisements, websites, etc. If a company doesn’t put an effort into selling a deal to the employees, it has to bear some of the responsibility if the deal is voted down. I think in many places those actions are considered 'bargaining in bad faith' or an 'unfair labor practice.'

    Why does that phone have a cord? If I'm not mistaken, that is not a phone but an electric razor, plugged into the cigarette lighter. She is shaving her sideburns. OK, I digress. But really, Britney getting a trim is hardly more disturbing than the short-sighted behavior of the UAW members.

    ZoomZoom : And she should stay off the phone while driving, too…especially if those glasses require that she navigate by sound! Geotpf : In the United States of America, steering wheels are on the left side of the car. I submit to you three possibilities: 1. She is driving in England. 2. The picture was reversed. This is done more often than you might imagine; and I don't understand why. 3. When was the last time you saw a PASSENGER on the phone? I always see the driver on the phone, never a passenger. So yes, I kind of assumed that she was the driver, but it is based on my personal observations, at least since the year 2000 or so. And yes she does look like Geordi LaForge!
