Celebrating Nine Years of PlanPutnam
Good Friday Morning,
Sarah Palin. Michael Jackson. Iraq. Iran. North Korea. And that's the news. (It sounds like a Billy Joel song.)
The Tilly Foster contract is back in the news again with a report that the lessee has been keeping some of his animals on Bondi's farm upstate. What that has to do with anything is beyond me but the Journal News must have had a slow news day.
Raw Insolation DataCongressmen John Hall and Maurice Hinchey blocked a Bush administration plan to privatize some 500 jobs at West Point. While Republicans are generally all over privatization it amounts to nothing more than a transfer of tax dollars from you to some private company and rarely saves money or provides better service. Think Blackwater, the mercenary army we once hired that cost us billions and billions to do what the army should have been doing. In the current case, the Pentagon was engaged in union busting. Kudos to Hall and Hinchey.
