We triumphed with the resume deliveries to Senator McCain today! There were FOUR tv cameras! CBS, CNN, WTTG (local Fox news) and Telemundo. Plus a wire service and I think an AP camera (it was a little crazy). And the AFL-CIO is going to post on their blog and include a photo.

The moment my now 10-year-old daughter started kindergarten, I knew that school schedules were a missing piece of the work/family puzzle. From the assemblies at 11:00 a.m. that only a handful of parents can attend to the countless days when children are off or released early from school, sometimes it’s hard to believe we’re living in the 21st century.
