Former Atlanta Mayor Andrew Young (who has never once returned a phone call to me despite his assistants saying he would, but I digress) was on the Colbert Report last night. Apparently Stephen Colbert's father was an administrator at a hospital during a workers strike related to the civil rights movement.
They were talking about that strike, and the current writers strike in Hollywood, and Young said something I thought was really interesting. Strikes only happen when you can't talk any more. And he quoted a teamster: "Strikes are never about money, they're always about respect."
