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.

You are a good person, and you will pick yourself up.

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.

Dan, please stop posting these. Point is taken, but it is too depressing.

Yeah, but 3 people in a cab is still better than 3 people driving 3 cars.

What was the first option again? Ah yes, "Exploitative fame-grab." Good luck with that.

Also, he might want to watch Schindler's list again, because I am pretty sure the tagline was not: "Amon Goeth has a story ... it needs to be told."

And learn how to spell 'parallel.' Normally I would not nit-pick someone's spelling, but I sorted it out with a lawyer, who said I could.
