You and I may not have been surprised, but I suspect that many readers of the L.A. Times Magazine were. Certainly, the editors of that paper--or of other news outlets that have recently run similar stories--wouldn't have published the piece if they thought it was old news. My sense is that the use of mandatory binding arbitration to squelch disputes by consumers and employees is something that's only now starting to seep broadly into the public consciousness and coverage like this is an important step. Was the recent defense authorization bill an important turning point? I'd like to think so.

I hope nobody is suprised.
