Tom Jacobs Salsipuedes

Scene writer Tom Jacobs has has "gotten out while he can" and left the News-Press for the Rubicon Theater Communications Director position in Ventura. He will be missed. Although I am sure there are other stories -- George has the scoop at I'm Not One to Blog.

That leaves maybe Nora Wallace as perhaps the only "Original Cindy" (ontology anyone?)....the war of attrition is almost complete. Karl Marx and maybe even Malcolm X would have a lot to say about the subjugation of the working class by The Man or in this case -- The Blond(e) Publisher. If everyone ends up getting another job -- how can the NLRB ruling be enforced? How can SBNP management get away with going months without following a court order? Oh, the sweet sensibility of that drawn out process called the appeal...likely costs more than hiring all these folks back for a year, but you will sure prove that you are right, hunh?

Blogging while drunk or sleep-deprived?

"Original Cindy" was the lesbian character played by Valarie Rae Miller in the TV series Dark Angel.

dark angel -- I try not to drink and blog as it can have disastrous consequences -- I am a bit sleep deprived, however...just trying to have fun and keep it real. I was watching it the other day and thought about how "Eyes Only" was a vlog before even blogs existed...

No question that Wendy and her lawyer legion are taking advantage of the glaring weakness in the labor law that allows a recalcitrant employer like the SBNP to continue to impose its intimidating and coercive will on employees even as it is being investigated and prosecuted, and found to have both committed wrongdoing and to be pursuing bullshit objections to the union's electoral win. But the NLRB does have some weaponry in its arsenal -- the 10(j) injunction -- that can go a long way toward counteracting that dismal intended impact, and there is reason to hope that it will brandish that weapon, and obtain a federal court order putting back the unlawfully fired employees. Soon, we hope.

Tom Jacobs is a good man and fine writer who cared about the local arts community. He will be missed.
