He went from the Washington bureau, where he was close friends with Steve Rattner, Judith Miller, and a handful of other reporters, to New York, where he worked briefly as a very young assistant editor Little big man demythologizing the savage the Metro desk, before moving on to stints in the advertising-and-production side of the paper, becoming deputy publisher in That name rang a bell.

According to restructuring plans proposed this week, the union will have more than half the stock in Chrysler and a third of General Motors, meaning it will have tremendous influence, with the government, in determining the future of the companies.
Larry Christensen, a retired UAW member still suffering from the illusion that workers and bosses have opposing interests, had a different take on things in Labor Notes: The media consensus is that union auto workers escaped the government-imposed restructuring of their industry basically unharmed, exchanging a few dings for control of the companies.
Nothing could be further from the truth. Chrysler retirees-like me-were assured in that our retiree health care benefits, funded through the Voluntary Employee Beneficiary Agreement trust, would last 80 years. Now we lose all dental and vision coverage as of July 1, and an independent analyst says the VEBA, our entire health coverage, will last only six years.

Thatcher, in fact, may seek to exploit her popularity in an early vote. She need not call a national election for another year, but there is increasing speculation that she will call it for October or perhaps even June. And, in full awareness of the approaching political test, her Chancellor of the Exchequer, Sir Geoffrey Howe, has unveiled a budget for the new fiscal year that makes minimal concessions to those among the voters who have been hurt by the Thatcher policies.According to the Big Bang theory, the universe will keep its expansion until the force of gravity forces its reversal and the universe begins to contract until it will collapse: the Big Crunch.
Other people say that the universe will not collapse, but then the stars will slowly die out becoming black holes; the universe will get colder and.
