Re: my state's governor rejects $700million stimulus

My state wanted to pay a private law firm $60K to figure out how to use the stimulus money correctly. What a waste of taxpayer dollars! The State has the biggest law firm in Delaware: the Department of Justice, and it's already on the state payroll. :x

Re: High Gain, Higher Risk...

"Very private companies like AIG?" WAFJ. Last I looked, AIG was a public company, and with that status come certain disclosure obligations. There was a big decision down here in DE about a month ago against AIG and, if the allegations of the complaint are true, those guys were hiding a lot of illici...

Flat-out lunacy. The staggering costs will be passed right through to Joe and Jane Consumer. And what about our vast coal reserves? What about nuclear power?

Re: New Dartmouth AD Wants Ivy's in Playoffs

What percentage of the vote of the Council of Ivy League Presidents is required to make the change? :?:

Tim Murphy, unfortunately, does not seem to be agitating for the playoff move. And Harvard's president doesn't seem to be a big athletic supporter... :roll:
