Day 25, and there will be no classes this month!

We are all taking a well-deserved break today, so no teachers will be picketing today. I thought this was a good thing, as it looked like progress was being made at least in the talks anyway, and our marching in front of our schools wasn't needed any more. After three consecutive days of talks, lasting at least eight hours each day, I figured something was happening. Well, if it did happen, it didn't last! Last night, the mediator called off talks, and they won't start up again until next Wednesday — October 1! So much for my Pollyanna-esque sense of optimism. I'm going back to bed...
