LOOKS LIKE THE NYC TRANSIT STRIKE IS ENDING. Good.
As Ryan Sager noted this morning, the strike opened up a class war -- just not the one the union was expecting. "[T]here is a class confrontation of a kind going on — but it's not between rich and poor. It's between the working class and what might be called the government-worker class. The gap between the two groups has been growing for a while." He notes the impact of the quickly (but not quickly-enough) removed blog comments, too.
