Lip Service

Friday, page 6, 'Governor's event draws protesters'.
"A crowd of roughly 2500 angry schoolteacher, firefighters, union workers, nurses...gathered yesterday outside downtown San Jose's swanky Fairmont Hotel where Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger was inside holding a fund-raiser."
Each of the groups mentioned in the article were union workers. Their anger was in support of union causes. What purpose is served by mentioning 'union workers' as a separate group?

Last week Governor Schwarzenegger spoke at Stanford. Reporter Jean Whitney cast admiring glances at the manicure of one of those in attendance. Today we learn that the governor's staffers were tight-lipped. Although lip action of the union protesters was not discussed in the article, it could fairly be concluded that their lips were considerably looser.
