    Soon, people will be fighting even harder to stay in their homes.

    Some will go out for a walk, and think,

    and re-engage with their neighbors

    and envision a way to keep kindness

    in their lives; for themselves and for others.

    Then, their land values will rise, and they’ll protect each other

    out of enlightened self-interest, which finds the geometry

    of the context.

    Then, maybe, they’ll feel their vision strongly enough

    to know that we are in trouble with ourselves

    in what remains of the republic

    and create something that has so much less to do with fear

    And so much more with truth of the heart.

    The truth of the heart.

    Which is,

    sometimes, art.

    Walk into the blare white blizzard

    brilliance of Providence, young ones,

    with art in your heart.

    With art in your heart.

    Connecticut’s Democratic Governor Dan Malloy has the following line in a press release discussing education reform and binding arbitration in Connecticut:

     “They also support proposals to immediately overhaul the state’s lowest-performing schools, and to re-write the state binding arbitration law so that students learning needs become a primary factor in contract negotiations.”

    Based on the above passage, it would appear that CT’s binding arbitration law has not led to the best interests of students being met.

    What the taxpayers need to know about binding arbitration is that it’s not a zero sum game. It’s not about whether you get an increase in pay and/or benefits, it’s about how much. That’s why it’s being pushed by labor. It’s guaranteed increase for labor.
