Today's NY Sun reports that both sides are digging in for a protracted strike. The thug who runs the NYC local transit union is named Roger Toussaint; his name was aptly given him to honor Haiti's murderous black revolutionary leader, Toussaint de l'Ouverture, father of Haiti's blood-soaked 1804 revolution against France that set the tone for the ensuing two centuries of chaos. Toussaint, the Sun reports, compared his union's struggle with that of--yes, Rosa Parks. The quote:
"We have pointed out that there is a higher calling than the law and that is justice and equality. Had Rosa Parks answered the call of the law instead of the higher call of justice many of us who are driving buses today would still be in the back of the bus."
Uh, Rog, Rosa Parks boarded a bus, manned by a driver who had reported for work.
