TRANSIT STRIKE Well, it has been a crazy day (so far!). In case it wasn't before, today it has become crystal clear to many New Yorkers just how important our city's transit workers are to our basic survival in New York City. I'm proud and supportive of the union for not settling for an unfair contract. The city can't function without them; they deserve more respect than what they have gotten. Today I encouraged my students to write about this historic moment and how it has affected their lives. I urge you to do the same, as will I. In the future, historians will need eyes and ears on the ground, in the past, who bore witness to these events. You can offer those senses, so people down the road can begin to understand the impact of this strike on daily New York lives. Enjoy the walk, Jules
