Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker is reversing a century of employment reform to reduce the state’s debt. As a result, Wisconsin has turned into a ‘Nam protest’. Actually bigger, according to crowd estimates mentioned in The Christian Science Monitor. New is news. Gov.

One of my favorite songs is “What Becomes of the Brokenhearted?” by Jimmy Ruffin. I started thinking about the song after reading about how the effects of long-term unemployment are crippling my generation.
