Hooray for Yale

It's about time, but Yale has finally reached an agreement the striking unions which have been causing it so much problems.

Personally, I have to say that while I sympathize with the unions' plight, I find their tactics much to be desired. In the past, they've tried to galvanize student support by pulling stunts such as waking up the students by marching down Elm Street (one of the main campus throughfares)--before 7 a.m.

Now, I suppose the point is to annoy the student body enough to make them demand the administration cave in, but as any relatively sentient person will realize, this a "shooting yourself in the foot" kind of strategy: the students will be made angry, but only at the people making them get up at an indecent hour of the morning.

But at least problems are resolved, and everybody seems to make out well with this particular deal.
