Re: Complete Randomness

The nice thing about my last job was, we (single coverage people) paid nothing out of our checks had our cash wages reduced to pay for the best plan they offered, which was, surprisingly, really good.
Fixed that for you. ;)

Re: Complete Randomness

Elf, I am looking at the higher deductible plan. It's probably a fairly decent price actually, but, like many things in Grown-Up World, I am still surprised at how much it costs. Is the HDHP an "HSA-eligible" plan? If so, you'll be able to deposit (pre-tax) money into a health savings account to us...

Re: The Race Relations/Diversity/Equality Thread

I guess I would fall into the category of a white person with only white friends, but I am pretty sure that's more of a side effect of only living places that are 90% white. Do you think that 40% of white people live in a place that is predominantly white? There are many counties in my state where ...

Chicago won't let store owners possess firearms. They have to resort to fighting off armed attackers with baseball bats. Luckily, the attacker in this case was a very, very bad shot. Most of these stories don't have a happy ending.
