The commie cabbie

April 8, 2005

I had to go pick up someone at the Westin St Francis hotel yesterday, after the Open Source Business Conference. Unbeknownst to me, that hotel is being picketed by its workers. My cabbie from the train station was playing some radio station that was so far left-wing it made NPR look like Fox — it appeared to be nothing but pro-Palestinian “solidarity” events and anti-Iraq war stuff. He dropped me off next to the hotel with the pointed comment, “The door is over there, on the other side of the picket line”. Gee, there’s nothing more refreshing than getting an attitude from someone who you’re IN THE ACT of tipping generously.

Funnily enough, the conference appeared to be entirely populated by suits. This is not your grandpa’s Open Source movement, ya know? I picked up my friend and hustled out without spending any money, thereby salving my conscience for having crossed a picket line.

    Why does your conscience need saving for crossing a picket line?
