WSJ: Walter Reuther's Ghost: Democrats vote to bar secret union ballots points out that organized labor at the national level is trying to do what they failed this month to do here in Colorado: strip prospective union members of the right to a secret ballot. Not surprisingly either, it is called the "Employee Free Choice Act", as in, if passed it will strip employees of the right to a free choice. This is Orwell speak at its worst. Luckily, it looks likely to be fillibustered in the Senate, and if it does pass, the President is likely to veto it.
