Steve Buchheit explains why denying public employees their pensions in the name of "saving money" makes you a big, fat hypocrite (and an immoral asshole).

This is why I love The Bloggess so very, very much. I don't understand the hoopla about the new royal baby, either. He's a baby. And I can assure you he's soiling his diapers just like every other baby in the history of the world.

I've long thought football was barbaric and risky. Now Malcolm Gladwell is stepping up his campaign to ban football from colleges, and I'm cheering him on from the sidelines. Go, Malcolm!

Fourteen-year-old Tuesday Cain explains why adults should act like, you know, adults, and manages to shame her detractors in a most satisfactory way.

When I read Ms. Cain's story a few days ago I thought "you go girl, get your ass to college so I can vote for you for president!"

As a former Government Employee, I second your comment. For some reason, many people don't think people who work for the government are supposed to 1. get paid. 2. have benefits such as sick leave, vacation time or retirement.

I guess to them our jobs are hobbies. Right? I don't know about others, I can tell you that I and many others were hard working. I and my colleges worked many Saturdays for FREE! How many non-governmental employees would do that I wonder? And thanks for your comments.
