On, Wisconsin...

I should have done this sooner, but I'm hoping a LATE explanation is still better than NO explanation.

 

If you've been following the news about what's going on in Wisconsin, you might have seen that we're all kinds of up in arms over a proposed "budget repair bill" which (among other things) will strip the collective bargaining rights from thousands upon thousands of public sector employees.  As a public high school teacher, I (needless to say) find myself quite vexed by this prospect, and have spent nearly every free moment these past few weeks engaged in activities and protests aiming to stop this ridiculous partisan bill. Just in case that wasn't clear a moment ago, I'll repeat it-- we're fighting to keep our collective bargaining rights.  Every state employee has already agreed to pay their "fair share" in raised costs, but this plan isn't about balancing the budget;  It's about busting unions, and that dog just won't hunt.

 

I'm not asking for your support here, nor do I want to hear any uninformed rants about subjects of which most non-public sector employees have no understanding.  I merely offer it as an explanation for why the podcast has trickled to a halt.  We have one more episode in the hopper that has already been recorded (The Search), but I cannot guarantee anything beyond that.

 

For those who have supported the podcast and enjoyed our excessive rambling discussions of a twenty-minute TV show, please know it has been greatly appreciated.  We will return if and when we can.

 

Peace,

 

-Matt-
