RBH and CasonBlog have already covered it: Bret Hedican went to have his bum hip looked at, and the ‘Canes are hoping to hear what he’s going to do.

Loyalty is a two-way street.

The ‘Canes have shown a lot of loyalty to Hedi, and JimR is hoping that Hedi will show the ‘Canes some loyalty by telling them if he’s coming back or not…and doing it before 1 July, so that they know whether they can go dippin’ in the UFA pool or not.

Scott Walker has said that he’s going to go poking around the market to see what his skills will command. From his comments regarding Jim Ballsillie buying the Preds with the intent to move them, it’s clear that his heart is still with the team that he helped shepherd through its first seven-odd years in the NHL and that he’s hoping Dave Poile will make him an offer. The Hurricanes’ response is that they’ll not wait to see if he’s signed or not–meanwhile, Glen Wesley quietly re-upped for another season with the team that he helped shepherd through its first ten seasons in North Carolina.

Loyalty is a two-way street.

The store I work at is under siege by a gang of freelance socialists who are making sport of coming in every evening, stealing whatever they want, and doing their best to intimidate whoever’s working that night and isn’t me or my boss–and not only does the Raleigh PD refuse to do anything about it except trespass the miscreants (rather than, say, actually arresting them for larceny and whatever other charges they can throw at them), but our corporate office has made it clear that we’re not to defend ourselves in any way should the situation turn violent…nor can we use the in-store alarm. It doesn’t matter that these low-lifes will come over the counter and beat the ever-lovin’ Chelios out of whoever’s on duty if that clerk picks up the phone–The Company is more concerned with the $500 that the security firm charges for summoning the police than they are with the safety of their employees.  So I’m looking for a new yob and being a hell of a lot more diligent about preparing to go back to school (after that 15-year summer vacation I took), because I don’t need my husband freaking out every time I go to work because he’s afraid that this will be the last time he sees me alive.

Loyalty is a two-way street.

See some of you next week in C-bus.

    Wow…and I thought my mom’s job at the Bay sucked. I definitely encourage the going-back-to-school, because I get the distinct impression that you’re already well-overqualified for a Stop ‘n’ Rob job, and having a piece of paper that says as much would probably make your life (and your husband’s) a lot easier.

    Don’t get me wrong–I love the people I work with and I care about the store and the longtime regulars and all…but it’s getting hairier and hairier to go to work. My husband’s got it relatively easy–he works out by all the nouveau riche people in Cary. But me? I work in the West Raleigh DMZ with the gangsters.

    I’m not afraid, but I’m not stupid either.

    AQ, I know it sux to be on the hunt for a new job, but I’m glad to hear that you’re finally getting out of there. It’s just not safe, gal.

    You’ll be great at whatever you do, so go for it!

    I’ve still got connections in NC State’s Continuing Ed. Office. Lemme know if you want to go that route.
