For Nine Hundred a Month you’d think that…
I pay $900 per month for health insurance.   For
that I get a high deductible followed by a thirty percent co-pay that eventually
tops out at $4,000 (in network).   Most years
I don’t make the deductible amount because I’m afraid to go to the doctor.  I bel...

Are we done yet?
A friend and I were discussing the Bible recently.   I wondered why nothing has been
added to it in so many centuries and suggested that perhaps it was time for
another chapter or two.   She told me that
it was complete as written and that there was nothing...

The Hard Sell
After
graduating college I was hired as a department manager for a large retail chain
that no longer exists.   Our store was not

Who's there?
We have been
so busy making every child college ready that we neglected to provide those
budding managers with one important thing.   We forgot to make sure that there were enough working employees who

Never Change!
I mean,
really.   Change is scary.   It might lead to success or even
recognition.   Change does strange things
to us. I’m going to

Heroes
In recent years, the debate over immigration in the United
States has been epic.  There are few
places in the heavily populated regions of this country where you don’t run

We see people in all lower-paid areas of t...
