Re: “Austerity's Champion

Unfunded pension liabilities are a problem born of political expediency and unintended consequences. Taxpayers are not at the collective bargaining table (indeed, they've been asleep), and it's very easy for termed-out pols to accede to retirement benefits that somebody else will have to figure out how to fund. Predictably, this has led to quite generous pension obligations that now eat up a big fraction of tax revenues.

If the journalism community is to be faulted, it is for their failure to have recognized this phenomenon as it was occurring, to wake up the populace to it. It's not sexy -- it's eyes-glazingly technical and boring, but important, and they, and we all, missed it. The bills for this inattention are coming due.

Re: “Hottest Fucking T-Girl

Fuller disclosure -- you can get SLAPPed for a $buck-99.

Seems rather un-Dan-like not to have mentioned that.

Re: “Mistress Is Miffed

Uh, EBS? I hope you are young and can be forgiven your ignorance. Sex in your 60s can be fantastic -- frequency may be down a bit from the halcyon days, but satisfaction is the goal, right -- and it's up like an adolescent erection. So take heart, young'un -- the best is, well, yet to come.
