    I do commend you for standing behind your beleifs, however errant they may be!!

    if this coming Mondays Labor Day observance is such a monumental National "thing" then riddle me this would you? Why is it only the state and federal and government offices with their workers are closed? And the Banks and their workers, The post office and the school teachers??? Anyone with feet in a ditch or hands on a brick or head in an oven will still be on the job. It has become a day that these master slackers lounge yet again while the true backbone keeps on keeping on. A misused day from an outdated movement that has gone so far from it's original mission it is laughable.

    I don't know what you're talking about. I've been in the private sector for almost 30 years. Have not worked a Labor Day in my life. And for the record, I've never been in a union. Engineers are not unionized.

    just checked an online schedule and the trains from here to both Boston and Montreal will running as normal on Monday. Guess you work for a better railroad.

    You beat me to it, Ken. My dad was an engineer and got that all the time.

    Like all holidays in the USA some people work, some have the day off. It varies, but never does the world come to a screeching halt. To the contrary, holidays are now all about the commercial aspect. Labor day sales, Halloween costumes and candy, Black friday, before and after Christmas sales, New years sales, Presidents day sales, then valentine hype, Easter specials, Memorial day door-busters, 4th of July blowouts. Even Veterans day sadly.

    Ken = well stated - just a minor correction - that they work is an assumption

    You need to tell the folks in SPEEA that . Longest White Collar strike in the history of the labor movement. Management found out they could not do without their engineers .

    Yeah... the catalogs for Cabela's, Gander Mtn, Macks etc all started showing up this week. We'll give you $10 off your order of $150 or more.

    Opener here isn't for six weeks. If it ever cools off, maybe some early teal in a couple weeks.
