I got two things wrong [among many] and honesty requires that I acknowledge as much. First of all, I predicted that Mueller would indict someone yesterday, and he didn’t. I remain hopeful. Second, I called the election a blue ripple, but subsequent analysis by wiser heads reveals that it was indeed a blue wave. The turnout was astonishing, and the scope of the Democratic victory quite reassuring. If we can survive until 2020, we have a good chance of crushing the Trump party.
My brief post about the forthcoming panel discussion at Columbia triggered some fascinating stories about campus organizing efforts, including a comment from one of the innumerable anonymati/ae about my own campus, UMass. I am sufficiently old school to believe that union organizing remains a valuable progressive strategy. When I was young, the AFL-CIO was the behemoth on the landscape. I would not then have been able to foresee that public employees, faculty, graduate students, and med techs would be the future of the labor movement.
Live and learn.
Now, about Broward County.
