Re: “The union label

I'm sorry - I also wanted to say that the article IS really informative and interesting, despite my disagreement with its premise - not trying to insult the author AT ALL.

Re: “The union label

a couple of issues i have with the article - 1st of all, it assumes that union arguments that free elections would still occur are truthful - in reality, the rule of thumb for most unions is to not push for an election unless you receive 70-75% signed cards. When the card-signing campaign begins, employees have not heard both sides of the argument. There are well documented instances of union intimidation to encourage people to sign cards. Additionally, the argument assumes that most unionization drives are initiated by employees. In actuality, data from the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) shows that unions actually initiate 97% of unionizing activities, with employees only initiating 3%. The EFCA would make the union the only voice when trying to unionize a company. I encourage you to do some more research rather than relying on SEIU or GCC/IBT talking points.

Re: “Gilbert Neal's Our Deepest Apathy...

Amen Grayson -

I'm tired of people complaining that a record they liked got a negative review. Odds are that the catharsis guy is either Mr. Neal himself or one of his close associates.

Get over it - when you send in an album to be reviewed, you're putting yourself at the whim of the reviewer. Grayson does a great job of being fair and even-minded. I listened to Mr. Neal's stuff and came to the same conclusion as Grayson. If you don't like it, sorry, but stop complaining and continue making music you think is good, even if a reviewer doesn't.

Re: “The guide to the week's concerts

i think grayson does a great job. what people don't seem to realize is that when you look at his ehh...whatevers, you don't see local bands listed. obviously, the indy is committed to building up and supporting the great local scene we have.
