An article in The Bee (April 28), mention is made of an employee of a large local company stating that: “The $400 cost of her medical insurance is too much for her salary which over 15 years has grown from $9.50 to $11.” That is 25 percent right off the top for someone already living on sparsely grained “road apples.” I don’t know if she will get any “trickle down” but she is already being “hosed.”
I know the great bloviator says he alone knows the alchemy needed to make chicken pie out of chicken(manure), but everyone must drink his Kool-aid if he is to be successful.

It resembles my own mind except that you happen to be insane.”.
