I've often found humor to be a fairly effective barometer of our society's mood. This joke has been making the rounds via e-mail, and I've seen it several times in the last few weeks.
A union worker, a member of the Tea Party, and a CEO are sitting at a table.
In the middle of the table there is a plate with a dozen cookies on it.
The CEO reaches across the table, takes 11 cookies, looks at the Tea
Partier and says: "Look out for that union guy, he wants a piece of your cookie."
