Walter Lippmann“Without unions industrial democracy is unthinkable. Without democracy in industry, that is where it counts most, there is no such thing as democracy in America. For only through the union can the wage-earner participate in the control of industry.”

–Walter Lippmann in 1914, cited in Thomas Frank’s “One Market Under God.”

david snelgroveOct. 27: A hearing is scheduled at 9:30 a.m. in Courtroom 401 before Circuit Judge Dennis Craig on two new issues relating to the scheduled re-sentencing of convicted double-murderer David Snelgrove, who killed Glyn Fowler, 84, and his wife, Vivian, 79, on Bannbury Lane in Palm Coast in late June 2000. The Supreme Court has ordered Snelgrove-re-sentenced because twice before, non-unanimous juries recommended that he be killed. That was deemed unconstitutional. Juries must now be unanimous. Before getting to that stage, a hearing must determine a) whether Craig has a conflict of interest as a sitting judge, since he was working in the State Attorney's office at the time Snelgrove was originally prosecuted (though not in the homicide division), and b) whether Snelgrove should have an evidentiary hearing about his mental capacities to be even eligible for the death penalty.

    September Marks Suicide Prevention Month

    WASHINGTON – The message from the Department of Veterans Affairs to the friends and families of Veterans during Suicide Prevention Month is simple: Be There.

    “We know that in 2014, an average of 20 Veterans a day died in this country from suicide, which is 20 too many,” said VA Secretary David J. Shulkin. “This is a national public health crisis requiring a national public health approach. When it comes to preventing Veteran suicide, VA can’t – and should not – do this alone.”
