Here is a letter to the SM County Times in today's edition:

Union leaders guilty of 'shooting messengers'

In response to an independent study by researchers at Stanford University, San Jose union leaders cry "fuzzy math." This is a classic case of shooting the messenger. In this case, the messenger is a team of highly qualified researchers: two math majors -- one a double major in math and economics, the other a double major in math and physics -- along with Joe Nation, who holds a Ph.D. from RAND in Public Policy Analysis.

Whose numbers do you trust? My bet is on the independent, highly educated researchers -- not city employees who have been delaying meaningful reform for far too long.
