Nobody likes a bully

Flush with hubris sanctimonius, politicians seeking to use their state budget crises to settle old labor scores are discovering that their efforts are uniting professors in state colleges and breathing new vitality into the very movement they hope to kill.

When The University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point faculty voted 283-15 to unionize, they demonstrated the kind of solidarity that groups can achieve only when threatened.

Governor Scott Walker thinks that he and Wisconsin are leading the nation on the issue of bargaining rights for government employees.

If that is true, we can only hope that governors in other states had teachers who taught them that bullies never win.
