Work, Work, Work
Okay, this here blog's taking a wee vacation (as if you couldn't tell). For now, I'm helping run The New Republic
's new enviro blog
, which still needs a name—The Vine? The Weed?—and may just be a temporary thing to coincide with our recent environment issue, but who knows.
Speaking of which, I've got a longer piece
in the new issue of TNR
on the big fight within SEIU that's going on right now. It's interesting, and I do think the debate at the heart of the feud is substantively quite important, and speaks to broader issues of what unions are for, and how they could survive and grow. I tried to lay things out as fairly and as clearly as I could, so... check it out.
