Labor group not paying living wages or allowing unionization.

Linkage!

Wonderful. They actually tried to get an exception to the minimum wage law, fired employees that tried to unionize, and pay their employees borderline-illegal salaries relative to the hours they're expected to pull.

Why am I not surprised...

It came out over the weekend that Bill Bennett, he of "Book of Virtues" fame, is almost certainly a compulsive gambler (even his "I mostly break even" defense points toward that). I'll be adding links here as I find them, but...

...I'd noticed once before Bennett was quiet on gambling. I'd also noticed there was something "off" about his tone when I read statements of his. I've said for years that what people DON'T say is usually far more important than what they do, and this was a bad case of it.

Bad Bet, from the Washington Post.

From Andrew Sullivan:
What, I ask myself, has he conceivably done wrong? He has done nothing illegal. He has done nothing hypocritical. Only in the minds of a few religious fanatics, has he done anything immoral. I guess Andrew would consider me a fanatic, then. Even though Bennett never actually said anything against gambling, he argued against the freedom that allows him to engage in activities considered by most moralists to be vices.
