Camaderie/fellowship during the strike

The strike bound us together and got neighbors meeting and helping one another. Betsy Crawford was kind enough to drive me in all three days -- and drive me home, too. We met our delightful anc charming Bliss Street neighbor, Peter Prisacarou, who joined us throughout the rest of the strike -- and some other nice folks, too, including Frenchman Alain and Iranian Alam (sp?), both Woodside residents whom Betsy gifted with rides the first day of the strike to reach our four person (+) per vehicle requirement. Betsy Crawford was/is my heroine -- and I suspect Peter's too :-)

And now the strike is over and we can hope that the union and the MTA work out a reasonable/fair contract that doesn't divide the current union members with those yet to be hired and join. Thom Hartman had some great stuff on his last several shows, PLUS he was hosting Majority Report on Air America Radio (which is archived at this past week) and is well worth the listening. Wish James and my neighbor Lois would give him a listen.

Meanwhile, we've begun Christmassing. Much more to say -- later -- because right now there is life to be experienced away from the web. And if you are in the mood for a good Christmas sermon, read my friend Fr. John Dear's article "Peace on Earth" Means "No More War" at

Peace hugs,
Kate Anne
