REQUEST TO EXAMINE PERSONNEL FILE

I made a phone call to an HR person requesting to set up an appointment to view my personnel file. I also sent an email to Robert Romo asking for a copy of my personnel file under the Oregon Revised Statutes.

No call back from HR and no response from Robert Romo either.

Strange huh?

REQUEST TO VIEW PERSONNEL FILE

I have just left a message for a (Robin Ruger?)HR person to schedule me an appointment so I can view my file. Obviously I am very interested to view what kind of records Trimet is keeping on me. We are allowed the right to view our files according to the union.

THAT'S BULLSHIT!

OUR TAX DOLLARS AT WORK

The U.S. Army has issued another apology to the people of Afghanistan after Rolling Stone magazine published more photos of U.S. troops posing with the corpses of Afghan civilians. Similar photos appeared last week in the German magazine Der Spiegel and were broadcast on Democracy Now! The Pentagon said, “The photos published by Rolling Stone are disturbing and in striking contrast to the standards and values of the United States Army." The photos include images of a group of U.S. Army soldiers accused of killing unarmed Afghan civilians in cold blood. Rolling Stone also published a graphic video of U.S. soldiers shooting and killing two Afghans on a motorcycle. The video was taken on patrol with a helmet-mounted camera. Soldiers later shared the video with others in clear violation of Army standards.

Northern Territory News

Driver being crucified by media, though some commenters get it:

I agree 100% with the bus drivers decision. She was thinking of the other passengers trapped in the confined space of a bus forced to endure the ear piercing squeels of a toddler. Some parents are so in love with their "little darlings" that they lose all sense of social etiquette. A screaming kid is NOT cute to anyone else but their parent. What if the bus driver had had an accident due to the distraction? How cute would her childs squeels of delight have been then? Get a grip parents!!!!

Final segment of Portland Transports interview with Mac(the knife)farlane

Nothing to earth shaking here, pretty much the answers I would expect. He surprised me in an earlier segment when he actually talked sense on some of the subjects that Dave threw at him.
