Commonmonkeyflower’s posts on the Borders strike are available at this one easy link, including some great recent posts on the issue of the “living wage.” Also, Raygun Gothic has created a special “Borders Strike Roundup” Page, and some (slightly older) other blogger’s posts.
Walking by Border’s today I ran into an acquaintance of mine and her friend who had come to a dead stop at the sight of the picket line. They said they needed to buy a video as a gift, and although they didn’t want to cross the picket line, didn’t know where else they could go to buy a movie without a car. Although I’m not sure what they did, I suggested they ask the strikers. Does anyone know any place downtown they could have gone?
