I've been watching various channels take on the story of the 14 dems that left Wisconsin in order to avoid a vote on a bill and I have to wonder what, if anything, do you think about that. Did they do the right thing or are they running from their responsibilities?

I don't know what his legal authority is.

In order to do such a thing he obviously must have some sort of authority bestowed upon him. In a very odd way the whole WI thing reminds me of what happened in the state I grew up in many years ago when bussing (desegregation) was forced upon us. Like many others I lived about a 10 minute walk to my local school but instead was forced to jump on a bus at 5:30 AM to be shipped clear across town. There were strikes and riots and the national guard got involved. Didn't matter what any of us really wanted-it was decided that the decision someone made was the best for all of us and we had to live with it.

Hmmm, it is rather interesting. So what if they were at home and refused to go with the state police?

I guess this morning they went to the legislatures homes in the wee hours to see if they were sleeping in their own beds.

I think it sounds like a dictatorship in Wisconsin.
