Re: Brooklyn only Actually, it did. My mother is a big union supporter and she worked management. One day, during negotiations with the union, a union rep was given a contract to look over. He read it, put it down, pulled out a Colt 1911 .45 caliber handgun, placed it on the table and said, "Let's get down to real talks." Management looked at each other and calmly walked out of the room and declared a lockout. Took a week but the next union thug agreed to the contract that was left on the table. This was back in 1977. Some things don't change.
