@21 -- and assault too, if they see it coming...

I have a job, voted for Obama, and couldn't sleep 'til noon if I tried -- like a lot of people. But to be fair to Cal, I did skip out of work a little bit early last Friday...

I am going to steal that right/rite distinction. Love it.

I agree with @Eli that it was a fair interview. If you don't want to be pestered with follow up questions, don't give bs responses.

I am sorry you lost your job. That said, when I moved to CA the only thing I liked better than avocados on everything was booze in every corner and grocery store.

The market will correct, and prices will be better for this.

He also writes for the shittiest right-wing website on the planet, townhall.com. I highly recommend it, but not right after eating.

@15 Also, obviously the Federal Government should not treat same-sex spouse health benefits as taxable. Another tangible loss brought to you by DOMA

In the meantime, however, make the Stranger gross-up salary and wages for its impacted gay employees. All employers should be doing this, and then be screaming bloody murder at the IRS for having to do it in the first place.

@3, @6, @12, @20, @24, etc. Tacky.

@2, 7 - Two things:

First, the head of the WI DoT, Mark Gottlieb, was appointed by Walker. According to the original JS article, the person who wrote the memo, Steve Krieser, was was appointed to his position last month. Couple that with the fact that it was an R controlled legislature and governor that passed the law in the first place, it looks like blaming the Republicans is perfectly legitimate.

Second, it might behoove you to be critical of bald assertions of "past rule violations," especially when an employer has a self-serving motivation for justifying a termination.

If you read the original JS article closely, you will note that Murray didn't assert that Larson committed any past rule violations until the second time he was interviewed. (If they actually existed, one would think the DoT would trmpet it from the get-go.) Larson himself denied the charge.
