SEPTA strike forecast continues grim

The Daily News reports that the two sides "aren't even close," not all that surprising, given the heated rhetoric and lack of negotiations. But hey, they "met for an hour" yesterday... Meanwhile, the union is set to run anti-SEPTA TV ads this week. Doesn't look like they're leaving much room for things to change for the better.

I don't care who wins the publicity war. A transit strike is going to batter commuters and other city residents, most especially the poor, and leave both management and workers after it's over with lots of work to convince the region to support them again. To judge by the fist-shaking, this isn't likely to be a quick fight either -- better start dusting off your bicycles...
