Strikers take refuge, world takes not much notice
Written by Bwog Staff
It’s 40 degrees outside and raining, so the strikers have abandoned their swamp and set up shop in Butler (hopefully avoiding a repeat of last night’s e-mail, timestamped 3:10 AM, “wondering if any folks are awake to bring us blankets and lamps”). After being in negotiations with top adminstrative brass Friday afternoon and gearing up for a march and rally today, at least Butler’s fetid air is less energy-sapping.
Meanwhile, the whole affair has shown up in a smattering of blogs and local publications to date.
The Times and Bloomberg has the straight story, the Huffington Post cheerleads, while Columbia fave Michelle Malkin thinks they’re a bunch of moonbats. Gothamist aggregates, Ivygate makes dumb jokes, NYU briefs.
And if anyone’s counting, the strikers’ petition has 549 signatures, from anyone in the world who feels like filling out a form.
