Most of the readers are aware I am a Union member. Wherever possible I do join the union if possible. I am familiar with most critiques of unions. However, I have seen enough companies wrecked by mismanagement to be aware of the other side.
The Union is gearing up to fight the detailing of workers to Iraq. The Union does point out that we are civilians who did not sign up for combat. It is not opposed to voluteers, but this is part of what is wrong with unions.
Many people including myself signed on knowing what agency we were working with. The reality is that one of the problems after Katrina was a shortage of trained workers.
The reality is that we are honored to serve and this is one of the things we know when we take our oath. We should be aware that if an emergency breaks out in Iraq or at home we could be called to serve. There are more than enough people who would likely volunteer anyway.
Oddly I was turned down for these details because I did not take sensitivity training. This is what happens when lawyers and HR types are given too much say in day to day operations. In reality many small companies show a two hour video and function just well.
Post blog notes
I will post the interview with Sonia tonight. This interview is intended for mature adults only. We will be discussing some topics that are seldom discussed. I do not
recall many posts or questions on art and architecture. Certainly nudity is not a subject that would appear on this blog under normal circumstances.
Those of you who are offended by NC-17 fare are encouraged to skip that post.
Steve Sonia claims that picture is her.
We may be getting some odd visitors with this visit. I urge my loyal readers to resist the urge to slap anyone around other than Ducky.
Ducky if you have odd film questions try to keep them concise.
