Around The Media
This Election Day there was an item I, for one, hope will pass. There is a current rule that awards point on civil service exams to veterans based on their receipt of benefits from the V.A. A vote for the legislation relaxes that burden of proof for the veteran seeking the exam points. If it didn’t make it, let’s work on it. Our local musician, buddy Fish Altieri, had great comments about the economy last issue. A petition to help veterans (and other political issues) can be found at chooseorloose.com, check it out.
Until Next Time
You only need two tools, WD 40 and duct tape. If it should move and doesn’t, use WD 40. If it moves and it shouldn’t, use duct tape. Any other situation, try beer.
