Show Notes:

The players association for the National Football League in the U.S. comes out swinging against so-called "right to work" anti-union legislation and we talk labour and sports, labour without sports, and sports without labour. Newt Gingrich pledges to colonize the moon, because colonialism has worked out great so far. Gil Scott Heron's Whitey On The Moon seems appropriate. And we have our feature "Below the fold: News you might have missed" with these gems:

Talk about the cow and you can be charged with terrorism
All 10th Amendment Claims are Self-Serving
Michigan puts the bull in bullying
NIMEU comes to Europe 
A new level of stupid for the Arizona state government 
Signs of the Decline of American Economic Hegemony (no. 27 in series)
