Preaching to the Choir.

We had some excitement outside our mid-rise office building today.

A group of unionized janitors protested the building management's decision to hire a nonunionized cleaning service. I was intrigued by all the noise, activity and excitement. I especially was curious about their message.

However, as I got closer I realized all the chants were in Spanish.

Too bad. I'm sure they had something interesting to say, but almost no tenant at the building could understand it.

Who then were they speaking to? Seems llike a perfect example of "preaching to the choir."
