Just saw a news report about Northwest Airlines. Apparently in addition to the $11 million in bonuses paid out to top executives, there was a $2 million payout to an ex-VP in a "consulting" agreement. At the same time, NWA is laying off thousands of employees and requesting a 10% pay cut from union workers.

Huh.

In general, I'm not a huge fan of unions. However, it is cases like this that leave me quite understanding of the role they need to play. I am really bothered by corporate elitism.


Woke up today feeling horribly depressed. Like why-bother-getting-out-of-bed depressed. I did get out of bed, but it was difficult, and after that I actually managed to accomplish some things. Like a complete redesign of a mechanical construct to be stronger and smaller. Works, too.

And no more projects before Convergence.
