The other big union, forgot the name of it, is loaning Teamsters $10M *per
week*.  When will Teamsters repay that union?  How will Teamsters do it?
Who's going to feel the pain?  Hear tell real pressure is being brought to
bear on UPS.  Some airlines have promised not to carry UPS packages; pilots
union have joined with Teamsters and the fly-boys are refusing to fly with
UPS packages.

I'm wondering if Poppa Bubba has a vested interest in this strike
continuing.  I'm wondering exactly what it is.

Glad to hear  you'll still be there, cas.

You got $3M in nickles, dimes, quarters, cas?  Will they take it?  Like a
shot!  It's unmarked money, hey! It can be laundered at MacDonalds, Mena,
Castle Grande, Switzerland, etc. by Bob Bennett, and a whole host of the
faithful.  Where's Ron Brown when they reallyl need him?
