A couple of weeks ago, the great Eula Bingham died. OSHA is a mess today. It gets no respect from employers.

One of the truly great character actors is no more. Do the Right Thing (of course). But also Léon the Professional, Fort Apache the Bronx, Purple Rose of Cairo, and so many others, plus the father in

Paul Volcker is dead. It’s worth remembering briefly just how responsible he is for many of the problems we face today. The first thing I remembered when I heard he died was a conversation I had
