The World's Smallest Violin

Via KLBJ-AM, we get word of a walkout by workers to protest some policy about vacation days. Walkouts like this are used to try to garner public sympathy for the plight of the lowly worker.

But these workers have two problems; first, they work in Texas, which is not exactly a hotbed of union activity. (Which probably helps explain how we've been weathering the current economic woes better than most states.)

But the second PR problem is bigger. They work for the Internal Revenue Service.

Oh yeah - I know I feel sorry for them.

In fact, I'd like for more of them to have more days off - maybe all of their days off. Permanently.
