+ - GOP Preparing to Steal the 2008 Election->

Submitted by
An anonymous reader writes "Hendrik Hertzberg of The New Yorker reports that Californians vote next year on a radical change to the allotment of their state's electoral college votes. Republican sponsors call themselves Californians for Equal Representation, but if their measure passes, it's more likely than ever that a Republican will win the Presidency without winning the popular vote."

+ - Dell lays off 200 at small-town call center

Submitted by

mr_josh writes "Dell closed its Roseburg, OR call center this morning, giving its employees less than 24 hours notice. FTFA:

"They've already had all of our checks cut," said another employee, Travis Dominguez. "They knew the whole thing was coming and everything."

Roseburg is a small (about 25,000 people) timber town in southern Oregon, and it was a pretty big deal when this call center opened in 2002. They were given huge property tax incentives at the time of their opening, and those incentives are about to run out. Also, some employees from the call center put together a lawsuit several months ago, "claiming Dell violated federal and state wage and hour laws."

Coincidence?
