One of the drawbacks of working during the day is that I don’t get to update this blog continually. As a result, most of my posts are made several days in advance and queued to publish at specified dates and times. If a budget actually gets passed during my workday, I plan to take an early lunch and update with the details ASAP, but aside from that, instant updates are pretty much not an option. So once in a while, an update — other than a passed budget — may manage to sneak past my paper-scanning.
For your weekend viewing pleasure, check out this 1970s-era AFSCME commercial. Note that the audio is not work- or child-safe, but it’s well worth the watch. The narration is obviously fake, but you know what? If AFSCME really did speak with even half this conviction, we’d all be in better places right now.
PS – if anyone has a link to the original commercial, which I believe was part of their “If I Could” campaign, I’d love to see it.
