Just saw this and can't express how disappointed this makes me. Doesn't inspire alot of confidence in our ability to prevent another recession if one of the organizations won't attract quality people: http://dailycaller.com/2014/05/25/government-agency-scraps-employee-ratings-to-avoid-discrimination/
If it had been an article about whether mothers matter, there would have been a million "think pieces" here and at the usual suspects (Gawker, Slate, Atlantic). Does the NYT matter? I would argue alot of times it doesn't with these BS articles. Although its editorial page is always good for a laugh.
Glad to see Uber and Lyft rising. Anything to break the stranglehold that inefficient cab companies and city governments have had on this industry.
@Allison Money well spent! Tough end to the season. But can't wait till next year!
@Allison You didn't drown your sorrows after the Hawks OT Loss?!?! That's where all of my weekend spending went.
@Chris2098 It's also authoritarian for people to dictate how others should spend the money that they earned. Especially when these people are DONATING this money. Not spending it on some luxury yacht, mansion, etc. Alot of good comes out of the billions donated to non-profits, charity. Not much comes out of the peanut gallery that is knee-jerk anti-rich white people.
I think this will remain the case but that $500K number will get smaller the longer the college debt problem keeps ballooning.
Nice job if you can get it. What exactly did she accomplish as Secretary of State? Besides flying around alot?
@stuffisthings Ha, not at all. But Germany didn't spend like a drunken sailor on a bloated and inefficient public sector (Theirs is actually pretty well run). Research why they are so reluctant to bail out the southern European countries who weren't responsible with their finances. And BTW, Germany is just one country in Europe. As large and powerful as it is, it does not represent all of Europe.
I don't think I've ever seen or heard of a great commencement speech...until this one. Man, I wish I was a Longhorn this year! http://www.utexas.edu/news/2014/05/16/admiral-mcraven-commencement-speech/
