Scabs!

The projectionist for the Crest is profiled in the SN&R this week. I like his last answer a lot. Why didn't they interview the projectionist at the Tower? Oh yeah, because Tower doesn't have union projectionists anymore. So that means that all the guys at Tower are just a buncha scabs.

Scabs are workers who cross a picket line, thereby undermining the union. Since the last picket line I saw at the Tower involved "Bad Boy Bubby" and the projectionists union has been toothless since automation was introduced over three decades ago, I would say the folks working at the Tower are just your usual underpaid non-union service workers. The Crest also uses old carbon-arc lamps which are more likely to cause fires if not attended by experts.

Being a scab used to mean a fight, but luckily American workers are lazy and compliant. That's going to change though in a few years. Wingnut and Steve's kid will end up being a union buster.

Some girl answered my bread ad on craigslist for the BLT but I think she knows who I am because she won't answer my response.

We work like a horse.
We eat like a pig.
We like to play chicken.
You can get someone's goat.
We can be as slippery as a snake.
We get dog tired.
We can be as quiet as a mouse.
We can be as quick as a cat.
Some of us are as strong as an ox.
People try to buffalo others.
Some are as ugly as a toad.
We can be as gentle as a lamb.
Sometimes we are as happy as a lark.
Some of us drink like a fish.
We can be as proud as a peacock.
A few of us are as hairy as a gorilla.
You can get a frog in your throat.
We can be a lone wolf.
But I'm having a whale of a time!

You have a riveting web log
and undoubtedly must have
atypical & quiescent potential
for your intended readership.
May I suggest that you do
everything in your power to
honor your encyclopedic/omniscient
Designer/Architect as well
as your revering audience.

Please remember to never
restrict anyone's opportunities
for ascertaining uninterrupted
existence for their quintessence.

There is a time for everything,
a season for every activity
under heaven. A time to be
born and a time to die. A
time to plant and a time to
harvest. A time to kill and
a time to heal. A time to
tear down and a time to
rebuild. A time to cry and
a time to laugh. A time to
grieve and a time to dance.
A time to scatter stones
and a time to gather stones.
A time to embrace and a
time to turn away. A time to
search and a time to lose. A
time to keep and a time to
throw away. A time to tear
and a time to mend. A time
to be quiet and a time to
speak up. A time to love
and a time to hate. A time
for war and a time for peace.

Best wishes for continued ascendancy,

P.S. One thing of which I am sure is
that the common culture of my youth
is gone for good. It was hollowed out
by the rise of ethnic "identity politics,"
then splintered beyond hope of repair
by the emergence of the web-based
technologies that so maximized and
facilitated cultural choice as to make
the broad-based offerings of the old
mass media look bland and unchallenging
by comparison."

Yea, who needs them pinko commie unions, anyway. The goddam Teamsters (IBTCW & H, Local 601) sent me a letter saying I had to pay them dues or be fired. The letter came weeks after I quit. Them Pinko Commie Dupes aint gonna extort my hard earned bucks outta me, no way.
