Hitler and Mick E. Mouse may have been on opposite sides in WW2, but when it comes to protecting the rights of public employee unions they stand under the flag of solidarity, which is why they signed the petition along with 900,000 other legitimate Wisconsin citizens to recall Gov.

I thought May’s list of things to be aware of was pretty exhaustive. Not so June seems to be equally jammed with things that need our active attention…
June is Internet Safety, World Elderly Abuse, National HIV, National ASK (Asking Saves Kids), Gay and Lesbian Pride, International Level Crossing (train track safety), Substance Abuse, World No Tobacco, Seatbelt, Beach Environment, National Scoliosis, Helmet, ERA, Glaucoma, Safety, and False Allegation awareness Month.

Good things could happen. An actual example of a S.W.A.Ting call after the break.
After a decade Michael J Fox is looking at other treatments besides embryonic stem cells to cure his parkinsons. If only he could go back in time to warn himself he will become anti-science.
