Yesterday's very interesting developments

• Negotiations not only started yesterday, they actually went on for six hours! I think that's longer than all other negotiations combined since the strike began. No, no settlement yet, but the next session is tomorrow, so maybe something will happen sooner than later.

• In the one primary election for a member of the Marysville school board, the MEA-backed challenger defeated the incumbent 57% to 27%. There was a third candidate who will be dropped for the general election in November, but hey, what kind of message does that send to the board?
