How about discussing the pensions/benefits of the current legislators,(and govenor) and then discussing what changes the legislators are making in their own and governor's future pension/ benefits. How long until they vest? What is their new "tier"? What is their percentage of contribution? At what age can they collect? How much do they contribute to their health benefits? Talk about state legislators and NYC city council, borough presidents, NYC mayor, school chancelllor, etc. Why is the information on these "high level people" never discussed?

How has 'greater' Atlantic City benefited from their casinos?...Not Well. A casino economy is a false economy.

Isn't it true the oil from the pipeline would not even be used in the USA?
