Beau's in an office where people keep getting laid off and he hasn't been but he's now doing his job and the jobs of three other people. They were getting a new supervisor today. Beau was thinking, "Yes!" He just knew that they would be splitting things up fairly.
That didn't happen.
The new supervisor didn't call a meeting, didn't even ask them how they were. Basically, he just hid out in the office the whole time.
And Beau just knew that today it would be different. Today, he'd find out that the new boss was going to redistribute the work load. Didn't happen.
So now he just feels like he's waiting until the day he has enough and storms out. He's doing several people's jobs but others in the office don't have that responsibility. In fact, while they've been supervisor-less, one co-worker has disappeared daily for two hours (to meet up with her boyfriend, not her husband).
Turning to the topic of the Libyan War, Kate Randall (WSWS) reports:
The Libyan government charged Tuesday that a NATO airstrike killed 85 civilians near Zlitan, 90 miles east of the capital Tripoli on the Mediterranean coast. Libyan government spokesman Moussa Ibrahim said the bombing occurred late Monday night in Majar, a community about three miles south of Zlitan.
The state news agency JANA reported, “Dozens of innocent and safe children, woman and old people were martyred in the heinous massacre committee by the colonial crusader NATO alliance as a result of its airstrikes on their homes in Majar (in Zlitan) while they were asleep.” JANA said that “20 families” had been killed.
Libyan television footage from a hospital showed what a broadcaster described as the burned bodies of at least three children under the age of nine killed in the attack. There were also video clips of badly wounded women and children being treated.
Libyan government spokesman Mussa Ibrahim told reporters on a guided tour that Majar had been attacked “to allow rebel fighters to enter” the government-held city. He said the 85 villagers killed included 33 children and 32 women. Journalists were shown at least 25 bodies in the morgue, as well as the ruins of several homes hit by the strike.
Do you ever wonder how many children we've killed in Libya? Or how we can walk around and act like nothing is happening?
It's as though we don't even acknowledge it's taking place.
