Editorial: Strike Strikes
One of the most incongruous acts in public service is a strike. Public servants are people who supposedly provide essential public services. When they refuse to provide them, as a bargaining tool to secure their salary and benefit demands, they betray the public they are sworn to serve.

President Obama and New Hampshire Senator Jeanne Shaheen have moved in unison performing an almost flawless political tango. According to Congressional Quarterly, 99 percent of the time Shaheen voted with Obama. She portrays herself as an "independent" voice for New Hampshire.
