Indeed. Most of us view SEIU’s antics as mildly amusing, as this Scout does, I would suspect. What are they gonna’ do, throw him in union jail? :-)
By the time I got to Eagle, I was not the same kid. For good or ill, you are never the same. It's just the way that system works.
SEIU is simply a cheap sideshow on this deal. The real story, and it isn't uncommon, is the public service project and that a kid performed it. It does present a nice dichotomy.
Another reason to oppose unions in all circumstances.
