Word on the street is that talks between the bus union and the City have broken down again. This is getting ridiculous. If the so-called negotiators on both sides of the imaginary table are incapable of carrying on the kind of serious and sustained discussion that leads to a successfully negotiated contract, they should get out of the way and let better people do it. Grrrr.
As far as I’m concerned, there are only three good things about this strike:
- David Reevely’s coverage of it, which is balanced and interesting and at times humourous.
- Some people are discovering they love walking to work.
- There is no third thing.
By the way, you might have noticed that I made a few changes around here, including firing one of the sheep and promoting Duncan. There’s still lots of tweaking to do, but I have decided not to indulge my erratic perfectionist tendencies at this time.
More changes are forthcoming. For example, all the posts have to be re-tagged, and I have to do something about making some more space around the images.
Speaking of erratic perfectionist tendencies, Duncan likes that I promoted him but he doesn’t like that I accidentally chopped off one of his ears and replaced the other one with a sheep’s ear.
What do you like and not like?
