Bad Timing for Union Bashing

This Sunday, the most watched TV show of the year will be set in Indianapolis.  Indy, the town that really has no earthly reason to exist except that the people who live there don't want to admit they were wrong.  Still, 10% of the world's population will be staring at the Hoosier State. 

Don't fuck it up, peeps.

Except, that the Indiana State Legislature is in session.  These are the same people who tried to redefine pi into something easier to remember.  So far, they have managed to push through the teaching of creationism in science classrooms, and just yesterday, passed a Right To Work bill, which doesn't seem to do anything except to reduce the political power of unions, reduce wages, and make it easier for employers to fire employees without cause. 

Funny thing about the Super Bowl... it's played by a bunch of Union members who just last summer, took action against management.  This may be interesting to watch the next couple days.  Things might get ugly, and I really hope they do.  Indiana should be embarassed about this.
