    Apr. 21,2015:  Mary Doyle Keefe, who in 1943 posed as “Rosie the Riveter” for famed painter Norman Rockwell, dies at age 92 in Simsbury, Connecticut. Published on the cover of the Saturday Evening Post in May 1943, Rosie came to symbolize women factory workers during World War II. (The Rockwell painting is sometimes conjoined in peoples’ memories with a similarly-themed poster by Pittsburgh artist J. Howard Miller, “We Can Do It!” created the year before.)

But as the overdose death toll mounts and the costs of litigation and enforcement actions climb, shareholders are demanding answers about what’s gone wrong and why no one at the top has stopped it. Over the past year, elected leaders and the news media have rightly turned their attention to the role of the country’s "big three" distributors — McKesson, AmerisourceBergen, and Cardinal Health — in fueling our country’s deadly prescription opioid epidemic which claims the lives of 62 Americans every day….As a long-term shareholder of these companies, the International Brotherhood of Teamsters has demanded that our elected, corporate board representatives do their jobs…wvgazettemail.com
