    My grandmother was a secretary to both the Dockings and to Carlin. It was a long time ago but in Kansas Dems were absolutely elected by the unions. My grandfather was a Boilermaker and that union was truly a power in Kansas for years. It will be interesting to see, as the pendulum is swinging back toward collective action, how unions evolve. I think they will be very different but much, much stronger in coming years. More power to the Bakers and best of luck this weekend.
