In Case of Emergency...

Dial 1199

In the world of sending signals, smoke or otherwise, the edit heads at the New York Sun seemed less than impressed with Speaker Quinn for standing side-by-side with 1199 for her first official press conference.

They were particularly bothered, not only by the continued appearance of Millerism, but by the fact that the press release announcing Quinn's Principles came from the union rather than her government office.

Nevermind that. But the piece did reminds us of the unusual hold that 1199 has on the Speakership. Speaker Miller's first major initiative was the Living Wage Law, seen by most as an 1199 payback.

Hmmm ... where is Speaker Quinn headed?
