STRIKE! Day Three

The New York Times is reporting that a deal is close, and the strike should be over by the evening rush hour. But what about the morning rush hour? I'm still at home, dragging my feet, not wanting to put on my running shoes and start the trek just yet. You'd think news of an imminent solution would feel good, but mostly it feels anti-climactic. There's no triumphant party here; the damage to the city and its residents has been done. The organized labor movement is more reviled than ever. I'm tired, and my experience has been easier than most people's.

Merry Christmas.
