Illness cuts short another cruise vacation
Thu Jan 30, 2014
What interests me are the people who did NOT get sick. There's a local story of a couple who went on that cruise where over 600 got sick -- the husband got sick, but the wife didn't, even though she was sharing his stateroom and so as exposed to the virus as anyone could be. Are some people more imm …
Brrrr: Cold lingers, with chance of more snow ahead
Wed Jan 22, 2014
It's only a nightmare commute for the handful of people who actually have to go to work today. (I guess that includes the media people, so they think that's the storyline.) Here pretty much everything is cancelled and they've told people to just stay off the roads. In other words, it's a standard wi …
'Only getting colder': Blast of frigid air set to smash records
Sun Jan 5, 2014
"Smashing records"? Really? The example given is Hartford, which may meet the "record" set in 2009, and other places where it may be the coldest in the past 20 years -- all the way back into the final years of the last century. Big whoop. Could we please hold the melodrama and hype? Call it "bone-ch …
With benefits cut off, long-term unemployed brace for a grim new year
Sat Jan 4, 2014
What I don't understand is why, now that the ACA has kicked in, someone with zero income is paying $1,200 for COBRA health insurance for his family -- unless they live in one of the states where the GOP-ers have blocked the Medicaid expansion. I hope everyone in these situations has looked at what t …
Butterfinger Peanut Butter Cups taste test: Too sweet or perfect treat?
Sun Dec 15, 2013
Why are news sites like NBC wasting space (and credibility as "journalists") on infomercials that are thinly disguised advertising promos? And how much did the Today show get paid by the company to feature their new product?
Come on down! Bargains ahead at overloaded car dealerships
Wed Dec 11, 2013
Fascinating. I received a letter today from a local dealer saying there is "a severe shortage of pre-owned Hondas in the New England Region," and inviting me to bring my old one in to exchange for a new one at very favorable trade-in values. (I haven't owned a Honda for more than a year -- sold my g …
That retirement crisis? Not so bad, after all
Fri Dec 6, 2013
The real problem with this article is the word "average." If nineteen people have zero savings, and one has $200 million, the average comes out to a nice fat $10 million. But in fact, nineteen will go hungry and homeless in their old age, while one flies a private jet among his seven mansions. What …
Dislike? Facebook is adding an 'Unfollow' button
Tue Dec 3, 2013
Where is the button to get rid of all the advertisements that are cluttering up my News Feed, for things that none of my friends have endorsed but apparently Facebook has "decided" I might be interested in? I hate it -- hate having to wade through ads just to see updates from my friends. I didn't us …
Giant Boeing 747 freighter successfully lands at intended airport
Thu Nov 21, 2013
Oopsie, my bad.
Too fat to travel? Man rejected by plane, train and cruise ship finally bound for home
Wed Nov 20, 2013
What I've never understood since this story first came into the news is how he got from France to the US in the first place, weighing at least as much and with the same medical issues. Did BA let him fly, and then make a note in his record not to let him fly home? That seems absurd. If they have som …
