…nolehace here…I’ve now been through four days of the trial and heard 13 witnesses testifying for seiu-uhw and against the outrages that were, more often than not, happening right under our noses…and I’ve sat through 12 mediocre cross-examinations…it’s not easy…really, it’s not…

…as I sit in the courtroom each day and see folks, some i’ve known for a long time and some i’ve never laid my eyes on, telling their stories while they face what I am sure is a hostile stare-down from across the room, it all now leaves me feeling kind of dirty and feeling not sad, but dejected…

…dirty ‘cause the testimony just keeps coming, more & more stories of desperate people doing desperate things to stay in control of their fiefdom…more & more stories ooze over me before I have cleansed myself of the last one…

…dejected because my spirit has been momentarily jarred from its usual calm place…jarred by the aforementioned stories of secret meetings, clandestine emails zipping around the state, plots hatched without consideration of who’ll get run over, databases being compromised, member manipulation, and so on…

…there was little happiness or humor today…no uplifting moments…just brave souls…

…but, as miss scarlet said, “tomorrow is another day.”…
