    In case you hadn't noticed, Boston isn't in California, New York, or New Jersey.

    Personally, I'd much rather see police officers and fire fighters getting comfortable pensions than see banksters and other CEOs getting millions of dollars a year and paying a pittance in taxes.  In fact, I'd like to see those comfortable pensions spread out to cover a whole lot more of us.

    Divide and conquer.  That's the billionaires plan.  And doesn't it work out great?  Somehow it seems so much easier to be jealous of and resentful towards those who are close to our status but a little bit above than it is to feel those emotions towards those who are so far above us, we can't even comprehend it.  So the fan those flames with this kind of information, not bothering to mention the risks these people took in order to earn their pensions.  Guess it works.
