Re: tax day.....tax day.....groan....

I retired last September, so my tax bill is lower than normal (I lived on CA, however)

Re: Strike the Tent CC

I left CA for good last September. Born and bred in SoCal. Couldn't take it anymore. My sister's family left 2 years ago to Tenn. I will never go back there to live.

I live abroad now, but when I go back to the States, it will be to Florida [more]

Re: Understand Economics = mean person

I actually graduated from Occidental a long time ago, as liberal a college as there is, even then. Made up for it by going to University of Chicago Law School, where classical economics was heavily emphasized in our study of the law. [more]

Re: LSAT

I took it in the late 1980's but the scale was different then if I correctly recall. I graduated for the Univeristy of Chicago Law School in 1992. There are conservative professors there too, mostly in the field of economics. When I went there [more]
