On Analyzing America's Most Affluent Towns

$77k doesnt seem very high, especially compared to some of the other states. This map does raise so many questions. Maybe the rich people in these states are rich enough to all live far away from each other in their own private towns of less than 1000 people.

On Canadian Health Care Awesomeness: Is It As Awesome As It Seems?

@eemusings I think in Australia we get free eye checks every two years and we can get free basic teeth checks and then stuff like fillings if we are willing to wait. Which seems ok but could probably be better

On Open Thread: When Do You Replace Your Phone?

Every two years, I usually get them on contract so two years is when I get a new one. I drop my phones all the time as well so by the time two years rolls around I usually have cracked screens and dodgyness anyway

On California Passes Bill Granting Workers the Right to Three Sick Days Per Year

I kinda feel like 3 days isnt enough, but it does seem better than nothing. Is it 3 days only if you are full time? Does it decrease if you are part time or casual?
