Germany led the U.S. in implementation of automatic bill-pay by many years. So the German press has been running these stories for a long time. Usually it's an old person found in front of the T.V. set, monthly state payments going into their accounts, monthly utilities and rent being deducted.

Hats off for launching a congressional campaign and getting national coverage on the first day! This woman will win easily.

Every year one product item goes nuts. This summer, it would appear to be the peach. I just got a cheap flat from Trader Joe's and they're good once ripened.

Whole Foods in SoCal put out organic peaches. They are huge and ripe. Well over a buck apiece. And they are in fact, the best peaches I have ever eaten in my life. Unbelievable. I didn't catch the name of the grower.

No way this would fly in the U.S. Everything here has to be ADA compliant. There's no way to get a wheelchair in that thing, and there's no way to get a morbidly obese person in.

Everything we build must be able to accommodate a 500-lb person in a wheelchair. Otherwise it is illegal.

I'm not sure it's a good idea to take the BART strike and frame it as a small-scale example of the role of unions in the U.S.

The reason BART operators have so little support in S.F. is that they currently do little and get great rewards for it.

Of particular interest are the overtime policies. The operators can easily exploit the system to bring home over half their base pay in overtime. They are allowed to call in sick for their regular shift, then work an alternate shift for OT. Not surprisingly, attendance has become an issue as well.

If the rank-and-file want a raise to their base salary, exploits like this will have to be closed.

HBD might want to look up the definition of the term "grooming". There's a good chance that mum is finding out what it means right now as she meets with the DA.

I thought it said "tweeter". I would certainly support slapping them occasionally.

@16, please do not discuss pee on slog. We are all delicate flowers and this sort of vulgarity brings down the discourse.

Do the dads leave with the same daughter they came in with?

It seems there's a cut right at the end. I presume it was done for time, and not because it was just too filthy.
