And this will be the  last of the navel gazing, meta posts this week, I promise! There’s stuff happening out there…But first one more quick little poll that I hope that even the lurkers will participate in (it’s totally anonymous!) about who is using the site how. I have some ideas, but I wonder if they’re right. Here goes, and thanks for coming to the Lounge!

  1. First:
    Thanks for the numbers and the links PhiloDave. I know it takes time to format the information.

    Is anyone surprised that the Union page ranked 7?

    Are we starvin’ for some representation/attention/communication/’we gots your back’ cooperation or what?

  2. I totally agree I feel starved on more than just an information relay level. There is a miss somewhere in regards to protecting union members and union leaders. Our current leadership uses a language and strategy that are no longer relevant in contemporary negotiations.

    As an aside was watching Rachael Maddow last night – I know lol I have a pretty groovy Friday evening social calendar. Lol but her report was on unions. She explained that teachers unions were of the largest, top ten, of the democratic campaign contributors of 2010 election. Unfortunately, that kinda means that all of corporate America is on the republican side, a bit of a bummer. My point though is that the power unions have is there is just seems misguided. So frustrating.

    • I was a little surprised by the fact that so many of the pages were ranked so high. The union page, I figure, can be explained by the A) general desire for info and recognition of its importance; and B) the various comments that were posted on that page and stayed up throughout 2010.

      Still, and I’m going to try to be restrained here, lest I start to spaz out, I am more than a little disappointed that our current union leadership has done nothing–not even said anything–about the significant anti-union move made in the state just to our north. Record numbers of people are gathering in a city that is a mere 90 miles away and we aren’t running a bus? With a local Mayoral election just two days away (one, which they’ve been so cautious as to not even toss an endorsement out (nor a statement about their lack of endorsement)), there’s been no local rally (Seriously–why aren’t our unions here in Chicago rallying some freakin’ place? Haymarket anyone? For the love!!), not even a frakin’ link on the 1600 Web site.

      I mean the only person connected with the Union Leadership whom I’ve heard from RETIRED nearly five years ago (I think. Might be four. Whatever; you get the point.)

      I’m going to stop now because I can feel the skin on my face, which means it is a shade of purple.

      GRRRRRRRRRR. That’s what I say. Grrrrrrrr.
