We begin in Today's News, where Walker Wins Big in Wisconsin Recall Election.  The stakes were high in Wisconsin as both GOP and Dem/Labor Party opponents poured resources into this dem-called recall election.  The result is a a big win for Scott Walker and the move to cut public union pensions - which also carried the day in a few California cities yesterday, Voters in California Approve Public Sector Cuts .  Public Union benefits are something many small business owners have a very hard time understanding because the benefits usually far outweight those of the public supporting them.  Whether or not it is a November harbinger is too early to tell; exit polls didn't seem to think so, but those polls proved worthless, too, predicting a very close contest, which it was not ... more bad economic news, too, as U.S. Productivity Fell 0.9% as Growth Cooled last month.
