Re: Greek drama fooling the audience

I frequently wish that lenders were required to total the entire amount to be paid back, rather than just listing payments and rates. If people immediately realized that would cost them, say, $50K to borrow $10K, they would be less likely to do it.

Re: The Southern Swastika Flag Should Die

Here is the thing. A whole of of people are taught that they should feel pride about being from the South, and that being proud of being from the South means inheriting the history of the Confederacy. But that is not necessarily so.

Re: Speaking of Social Security

I looked at similar numbers when I "left" my job at almost age 62; I went with the bird in the hand argument.

Re: Where is economy growing

I wonder whether it is expensive to drive a truck to Detroit because the trucks are built in Detroit. I haven't been able to find out where the trucks come from, though I think the trailers come from Arizona.

Re: OT? Type1 Diabetes and generic TB vaccine?
