I have an awesome landlord.

We had a couple of feet of snow dumped on us a couple of days ago, with another couple of storms heading our way. So I decided to shovel out my car, which is still in the driveway. I got all ready for shoveling, and went downstairs, only to discover [more]

The mayor called:

He said we could park on the street starting tomorrow after 6 pm.

It's one of those reverse call things, where they can call everyone in town to update them on a situation. The blizzard finally went away, but getting the car out of the [more]

Re: Don't want bankruptcy, other options? sorry,

Not so well, as it turned out

The only person I felt sorry for was the daughter, who was hit at the last minute with, "we can't afford college, sorry."

Re: Cancer surgery supplies

Re: Poll: CC tuition

Even if you fired every one of the key executives of WalMart and distributed their total compensation as annual bonuses to the rest of the employees, it would amount to less than $40 per employee.

Then tell businesses that the wages of all the people that are previously making say $10/hour will have to be raised to at least $18/hour and those that were making $18/hour will have to go up to $22 or $21/hour, etc., etc. Naturally the [more]

Calling a minimum wage job a job for the kids just shows you are out of touch with the current state of the workforce. How many kids do you see working at McDonalds these days? I haven't seen any in several years. The jobs are staffed by middle [more]
