  •  le sequoit, went down to Mr. Regina, who has a (0+ / 0-)

    Kindle, and got a copy of your book. We will both take a look as we have the synch with MP3/Mac.

    When you have time, could you let me know about the age 67 on SS and/or Medicare. I just don't understand. I thought that was one of the big fights on the deficit reduction, and now I see in your story and in some others that age 67 is in place for some already.

    If there is a good link on SS and Medicare on age 67, shoot me there.  I am trying to understand this fight.

    Oh and by the way, in France the entire country had a hissy when they raised the age from 60 to 62 last fall.  The strikes were aimed at repeal.  From what I hear, when Sarkozy is out they will try to roll back that age change, in favor of more jobs for young people.

    I just heard a bizarre story from our town. Two school admins at the top of their salaries took early retirement and got into the highest tier of pension under state employment.  Then they did the right thing and...

    But no, they went back and took jobs as contractors doing what they had been doing instead of making room for two more.

    Huge fights in our local editorials about this. The most ardent opponent to the double dipping is a postal worker about in the retirement age group.  He is getting a lot of flak from those who think the school district is better off not having to fund benefits for two new hires.  It's getting ugly out here.

    Science is hell bent on consensus. Dr. Michael Crichton said “Let’s be clear: The work of science has nothing to do with consensus... which is the business of politics. Science, on the contrary, requires only one investigator who happens to be right,”
