DTSD Double Dip?

What Do You Get for $149,198?

Wouldn’t it be nice to have a $600 a day job? And collect a pension from the same employer at the same time? And have two lawyers to defend the deal? And have the taxpayers pay for everything?

From Where I Sit



As mentioned last week, I spent Friday evening, Jan. 24, at the AACA Museum out on Route 39. The occasion was the opening night reception for their new exhibit, titled “The Art of the Build: Rods and Kustoms.” It is a celebration of what they call “cars and their creators that dared to be different.” It was certainly that and […]

The Usual Suspects
