On the Radar: Pro-union protest, Lohan's plea, NATO's plan, Heat's struggles

Public unions -- Pro-union demonstrators plan to rally outside the Wisconsin capitol Thursday - the morning after the state's Republican-led Senate passed Gov. Scott Walker's proposed restrictions on collective bargaining for public employees. Senate Republicans got around a long-running Democratic walkout on Wednesday evening by stripping financial provisions from the bill.

Lohan plea - Actress Lindsay Lohan heads back to court Thursday to say if she will accept a plea deal on a felony charge of stealing a $2,500 necklace. At her last appearance in February, the judge warned Lohan that any plea deal would involve jail time.

NATO and Libya - NATO officials scheduled a meeting Thursday to discuss a response to Libya's civil war. Alliance defense ministers gathering in Brussels, Belgium, will discuss whether to implement a no-fly zone over Libya to minimize civilian casualties from the Libyan air force attacks.

Miami Heat – The NBA franchise that added league MVP LeBron James and Chris Bosh last summer finds itself in a five-game losing streak. Breaking that skid may be a tough task as Kobe Bryant and the Los Angeles Lakers come to Miami for a 7 p.m. ET game. SI's Zach Lowe looks at what might be behind the Heat's problems.

    Dylan, you're completely right. There was a time when the US got more production out of its workers than any other nation. Unions ruined the efficiency of American production. I know union workers don't want to hear that they're not worth the wages they've been making, but it's true.

    LeBron, I know you get tired of hearing you should have stayed in cleveland,but you should have. You were loved by everyone there. Miami dosen't think your anything.Us clevenders thought the world of you!! I never watched basketball till you came on the scene & some how watching you on the Heat team just isn't the same. You played much better in cleveland! Wish you could go back. Don't you miss that beautiful home you had built .I bet your boys & Savanna miss it. & akron. I will always love you .But you took the wrong chose in life.

    if unions make american workers lazy then why are the us workers the most productive ? these are proven statistics backed by science . union workers are not overpaid they have fought and bled for there wages and benifits. they have brought everyone uion and non union fair wages and benifits . witbout them your pay will shrink your benifirs slashed and you will have no voice so please inform yourself before assuming that unions are the root of your problems. and please stop being jealuos of what they have because you dont have the balls to stand for yourself!!!!

      Why is the American labor force the most productive?
      Because it is the most non-union.
