UC workers strike but find a foe where the friendlies should be – an unfortunately familiar story.

Next up, unemployment rates may be going down but what does that actually mean? Hint: no, our economy is not doing well.

And neither are the soon-to-be-homeless elderly of Louisiana – because you know, budget cuts – and screw grandma.
