    I have no problem with Costco--they reportedly pay decent wages--with benefits.  Main St is sadly yesterday--malls and big box stores are today--online is tomorrow.  We might not like that, but not all progress is beneficial.  What it is, is, inevitable.  Most of the jobs lost were never well paying--the real victim here is the small entrepreneur.  When we complain about "progress" we sound like reactionaries who want to go back to the good old days--which were never as good as nostalgia remembers.

    Large internet companies --and UPS/Fedex --need strong unions.  A vibrant society replaces the old with better.  Our mutual fear is that we're no longer that vibrant.

    Actions speak louder than petitions.
