First offense in 15 years. First time caught more likely. Funny, how most people work 30-40 years and never commit any sort of offense and yet public employees and cops/firemen in particular are given special dispensation.

Are you people so naive as to believe that prostitution isn't occurring at these parlors? Most of the masseuses at the Oriental ones can barely speak English, of course they are trafficked. My guess is certain connected "businessmen" own these things and make a ton of money that gets kicked back to some to look the other way. That's the only way they can continue to operate unabated.

Funny how the obvious UAW members are more than happy to bash Fair and Equal but if the shoe was on the other foot, they'd be doing the same thing. I for one don't blame him for doing everything he does to bring the unfairness to light. Keep up the good fight F&E, there are people out here who are with you 100%.

Does that mean they can actually start to pay the principle on the Covelli center loan?

I wonder if those who came to protest the closing would be so supportive if they, and they alone were the funding source to keep it open?
Time to right size the Postal Service and make it operate in the reality of the marketplace. If volumes are down, then they must shrink to coincide with the business.

The USPS is old technology, inefficient, and overpaid, whose time has passed. It should be slimmed down to meet the demand. The choice is clear. The employees can accept cuts to their compensation to save jobs or watch jobs disappear. The taxpayers should not shoulder the burden keeping obsolete industries alive.

thethinker is correct, the inner circle of corruption is quite amazing. One of the things you get when you have a media controlled by one or two corporations and a print media without the financial where with all to do any investigative journalism is increasing corruption, nepotism, favoritism, and waste.

It really is amazing the scams being perptrated on the taxpayers and none of the participants is ever prosecuted. Shut this agency down.

The day of reckoning is fast approaching. Todays pension promises are based on 7% growth in the pension funds year after year. That growth is not happening so the alternative is one of these 2.
1. Higher taxes to make up the shortfall.2. Reduced benefits.
I doubt the taxpayers who are severely underfunded in their own 401K's are going to want to also fund the overly generous public pensions.
