    Community turns blind eye to demise of unions it spawned - By Laura Berman, The Detroit News
    Maybe Michigan -- with its accelerating brain drain and declining job-base -- is becoming the Deep South of the North.

    This state, which played a major role in spawning the nation's labor union movement, is now becoming a cutting-edge laboratory for the demise of unions.

    What we built here is now getting busted here.

    Even that phrase -- union-busting -- that once carried the full-force charge of an epithet has become a mild curse or even, in some circles, a term of approval.
