The storm is building

Scott's picture

A building stormWith so much focus on the economy and bargaining, I've been a little lax in pursuing some of the other areas of interest around SEIU Local 503. Actually, I have been following them, I just haven't been covering them on the site.

Right now, everyone is working very hard to address the upcoming budget woes. They're planning the contract negotiation campaign. It all sounds great. Everyone working together for the good of the membership.

So I hope it won't appear petty to address the other things going on. There's so much to cover, and it doesn't stop just because we're facing an economic nightmare. There's a storm building and I, for one, don't want to get caught unawares.

Re: The storm is building

I can't help but think that Gogol Bordello song, 'Start Wearing Purple' is very appropriate to our situation. :-p

For those who would like the lyrics, I'll paste them below (but check out the video, it's very entertaining!)...

GOGOL BORDELLO -- 'Start Wearing Purple'

Start wearing purple, wearing purple
Start wearing purple for me now
All your sanity and wits, they will all vanish
I promise, it's just a matter of time

So yeah, start wearing purple, wearing purple
Start wearing purple for me now
All your sanity and wits, they will all vanish
I promise, it's just a matter of time

I met you were a twenty and I was twenty
But thought that some years from now
A purple little little lady will be perfect
For dirty old and useless clown

So yeah, start wearing purple, wearing purple
Start wearing purple for me now
All your sanity and wits, they will all vanish
I promise, it's just a matter of time

I know it all from Diogenis to Foucault
From Lozgechkin to Paspartu
I ja kljanus obostzav dva paltza
Schto muzika poshla ot Zvukov Mu!

So yeah, start wearing purple, wearing purple
Start wearing purple for me now

Start wearing purple for me now!

All your sanity and wits, they will all vanish
I promise, it's just a matter of time

So Fio-Fio-Fioletta! Etta! Va-va-va-vaja dama ti moja!
Eh podayte name karetu, votetu, i mi poedem k ebenjam!

So yeah, start wearing purple, wearing purple
Start wearing purple for me now
All your sanity and wits, they will all vanish
I promise, it's just a matter of time
