Comment on: 'City, town health care plans most costly, report says'
Posted 04/05/2011 12:38:57 EDT
When an employee agrees to take 60% of wages in cash and 40% of wages in benefits, no one should be outraged to discover that the cost of those benefits is greater than those for an employee who agree more »
Comment on: Cigna employee seeks $100m in discrimination suit
Posted 03/03/2011 03:54:55 EST
The $100M is what the class is seeking, folks. If they got it, the lead plaintiff might get $100K or so. This sounds like a huge class of plaintiffs (women who work at CIGNA) so lots of people to spre more »
Comment on: The arrogance divide - The Boston Globe
Posted 02/22/2011 12:44:38 EST
What's wrong with expecting citizens in a democracy to be informed, curious, rational participants? Sometimes 2+2 really equals 4. Liberal frustration with populists stems from their insistence that i more »

OK, in a country of 80 million people, the 200K - 300K peaceful "pro-democracy" protesters want the President to voluntarily step down now, but the ?anti-democracy? counter-protesters want to wait for more »
Comment on: 'System that lets Boston firefighters swap shifts a costly free-for-all'
Posted 01/30/2011 03:10:20 EST
This sounds like a way for firefighters to monetize their sick days. Firefighters who don't want to work call in sick; when they are out of sick days they pay cash under the table to someone else to s more »
Comment on: 'Few notice as tax cut puts more money into paycheck'
Posted 01/21/2011 10:58:29 EST
Yay, an extra $10/week! Now I can save for my daughter to go to college, and she can go when we've saved enough (i.e. when she's 87 yrs old). What a pathetic joke. more »
Comment on: 'Starbucks expanding rollout of 31-ounce drink size'
Posted 01/17/2011 07:38:06 EST
"The expansion comes after the cafe chain tested the 31-ounce cup in several markets last year, including Phoenix, Tampa, Fla., and Atlanta." So, who is confused about what state Tampa is in, that is more »

Bostlou: Sounds like you've exposed another abuse. The health care system is not doing anyone any favors by spending $6M of the public treasury on futilely staving off a death for 10 weeks. Death is p more »
Comment on: Democrats pick an odd time to grow a spine - The Boston Globe
Posted 12/11/2010 03:37:56 EST
If everyone agrees that extending unemployment insurance is a necessity, we will have it. If everyone agrees that extending a tax cut to the most successful, we will have it. My sense is that if we ha more »

Comment on: 'SJC statement on Probation report '
Posted 11/18/2010 06:37:47 EST
You're wrong. Judges are hired by merit and work very hard, not by kickback for no-show jobs. Most judges would make far more in private practice, but they sacrafice for the public. more »

Crafty and Sly 1, I repeat - what's your alternative? Should Prudential drop off a bag of cash? or a check? And wash their hands of any problems the beneficiary might have? Many people just aren't pre more »

Wow. Just wow. Commenters please: What, exactly, did you want Prudential to do here? They sent the widow a checkbook. She could have gone straight to the bank and deposited the entire amount, just as more »

Comment on: The estate tax mistake - The Boston Globe
Posted 07/30/2010 01:48:13 EDT
Everyone opposed to the estate tax should specifically name the tax they want to levy to replace the revenue. Unfortunatly for us, the achilles heel of being a democracy is that we need an informed an more »
