Lots of buzz this morning that, despite yesterday’s posturing, the two sides in NYC’s transit strike are talking and possibly close to an agreement. There’s even a news blackout at the hotel where negotiations are taking place — a sign, some say, that an announcement is imminent.

Jailing Toussant prolongs the strike, rather than ending it.
Meanwhile, many Masters and Mistresses of the Universe plan to start their holiday tomorrow and take next week off. What about you? Planning to leave the subways, buses and class wars behind?
