DBD 08-05-2013 What Madness is this?

What? No DBD and it's 8:37 AM on a Monday morning?

Late Sunday night, Governor Jerry Brown appoints a 3-member board of inquiry to investigate the stalled BART negotiations.

According to sfgate.com, Brown wrote in a letter to BART's GM and three top union leaders that he is stepping in because a strike "...will significantly disrupt public transportation services and will endanger the public's health, safety and welfare."

I guess it took the 4-1/2 day strike in July to demonstrate that this would be the case?

The sfgate.com article goes on:

The board must provide the governor with a written, public report on the contract talks within seven days, during which time the unions are not allowed to walk off the job nor can they be locked out by BART. Brown then will decide whether to impose a 60-day cooling-off period on BART and its unions, which would delay any possible strike until mid-October at the earliest.

So, what this means is that we could have this brinksmanship of running up against a strike deadline play out again next Sunday, and then again in October if there's a cooling-off period imposed by Governor Brown.

I'm so ready for this to be over. I'm ready for football season to start, already! What are you looking forward to as a distraction from this BART mess?
