The protests in Madison, WI demonstrate that while unions and their supporters can rally a lot of people when the cameras are on, their ability to communicate the social value of unions and the union movement, for the benefit of both their members and the rest of us, is sketchy at best. The union movement needs vastly better PR, and they better get busy making up for lost time, or the movement will go out of the unions.

Candlelit live jazz over $32 venison is out and cycling-friendly $10 lunch plates will soon be in, says Madison, WI, restaurateur Chris Berge, who plans to close Restaurant Magnus and reopen it as an urban, bike-themed restaurant.
Berge, who recently proposed building a restaurant along the Southwest Path that would be inaccessible by automobile, said he plans to open Velo Bahn in March just off the Capitol Square on East Wilson Street, where Magnus has been located since 1998 and will close Jan. 2.
The change is in reaction to a declining market for fine dining and the anticipated arrival of rail passengers from Milwaukee across the street in 2013, Berge said.
