Wendy will be here before I finish this article, and we have lots to do, so excuse me while I hurry. Tomorrow I have a post-op/pre-op eye exam. Please expect no more than a Personal Update. "Later: we found the keys. I just got a Mariachi strap for my guitar. I have not had time to try it yet, but on the way to bed I had put it around my neck to see how it fit. Then I took it off and put it on top of my dresser, which is out of my line of sight. The strap has too hooks, and when I took it off, one of the hooks caught my key lanyard and lifted it off my neck. ARGH!!

From Daily Kos: Good news for Oregon workers in the retail and fast food industries. The state has become the first to pass a law protecting workers from some of the worst scheduling abuses employers love so much.
One in six Oregonians receive less than 24 hours of notice before their shifts, according to a survey the University of Oregon Labor Education and Research Center published in February.
Now, Oregon is mandating that the state’s largest employers in the retail, hospitality and food service industries — those with more than 500 workers — give employees their schedules in writing at least a week ahead of time.
They’ll also have to give workers a 10-hour break between shifts, or pay them extra.
Oregon leads the way! RESIST!!

While not invoking former President Bill Clinton or Hillary Clinton by name, Ms. Warren sent an unambiguous message that she believes the Clinton effort to push Democrats toward the political center should be relegated to history.
“The Democratic Party isn’t going back to the days of welfare reform and the crime bill,” she said, highlighting measures Mr. Clinton signed into law as president that are reviled by much of the left. “It is not going to happen.”
Here is the speech:
She said one thing that I’ve been saying for some time: "We need to see each other’s fight as our own." Other than that highlight, "Woooo Hoooo Liz!" RESIST
