Kerry Won't Cross Police Picket Line

Good for John Kerry. He has canceled a speaking engagement at the Mayor's Conference in Boston Monday because police will be picketing the hotel in which the conference is being held. He won't cross a picket line.

"Senator Kerry will not cross the picket line and therefore will not address the U.S. Conference of Mayors," said spokesman David Wade...."John Kerry has never crossed picket lines in his time in public life," said Wade.

While we're not generally supporters of law enforcement, we will say that it's shameful how little we pay our police--and our teachers. We hope the mayor of Boston reconsiders.
