How can you hear with your head in the sand??

2008 presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton is calling for a massive expansion of the 1993 Family and Medical Leave Act, saying that an updated version should offer time off from work for parental participation in children's school activities and health care, as well as personal time to care for aging parents.

Well, la-di-da.... In light of Shillary's obvious '08 ambitions, perhaps she should pay closer attention to world events - such as, uh, i dunno, let's say, FRANCE -- where similarly designed busy-body-state-intervention into the employer/employee relationship has caused some rather large problems of late. Good one, genius. Guess what? Employers don't like to hire people with state-sponsored baggage.
