Union-busting, Schmunion-busting

The St. Pete Times doesn't practice political activism? Hmmm.

On one of its blogs today, a reporter runs a headline, "Crist backs union-busting education bill."

"Union-busting" -- odd term to portray SB 6 as it makes its way to Gov. Crist for a signature. Union-busting is a term with a long and controversial history. All negative. It implies that the bill has a goal of twisting arms, cracking skulls -- figuratively speaking, anyway -- and forcing unions to disband.

Read the legislation. This bill does nothing of the kind. No current tenures are changed and no teacher in Florida is prevented from joining a union.

The only thing "busted" today is the Times.
