All Good Things Must Come

It's taken me all this time to find the "New Post" button. I am a technoboob. Are there others? Am I alone in this universe? (I always wondered what would happen if I believed in the string-theorists' extra dimensions.)

As a matter of blogging seriousness, I can only offer that our president is a politicoboob: We will not have universal health care in this country or even equable health insurance in this country, because Barack Obama either does not know his ass from his navel or the forces of e-e-e-evil are too mighty and numerous to be overcome by mere mortals.

AIG Fatigue

I don't know about the rest of you, but I accept the explanation that these were retention payouts
that were contracted, such that if Employee A is still employed at a given date Emp. A will get a bonus keyed to his/her length of employment. If Emp. A left AIG after the said date, he/she is still entitled to the payout.

Presented thusly, these payments are kosher. Of course, they are currently impolitic.
