    Even the Teamsters are without balls and /or brains.  Sorry for the gender reference, but we are talking about the teamsters--Jimmy Hoffa's union.

      for the balls reference - especially since the writer seems fully aware that it's a miserably bad way to express him/herself.  How about substitute the word "backbone" the next time you start to use the word "balls" in this context!!

      And don't knock the entire Teamsters Union for what one clerical union does.  Sounds like they need better stewards who will communicate with the workers as well as national leadership.  Ineffective stewards are disastrous for workers as this contract proves.
