Quick Fix 6 — 12/23/05

1. APhoto Fix: A commuter on a Manhattan-bound train reads the New York Daily News with a headline about the end of the three-day transit strike earlier today. The citys crippling strike ended Thursday when union leaders, facing mounting fines, possible jail terms and the wrath of millions of commuters, voted to send their 33,000 members back to work without a new contract.
