Wife was watching “The Judge (2014)” on the netflix last night. I was dutifully posting to the GoA, as is my custom, but this line caught my ear:

“Defendent” in courtroom: This ain’t fair…
Judge: Hey! One more word. Go on. Look around you. You’re standing in one of the last great cathedrals in this country…built on the premise that you and you alone are responsible…for the consequences of your actions. Now, you still want fair? All right. Head north. Stop when you get to Indianapolis. Tractor pulls, cotton candy…kettle corn and the world’s largest steer. First week in August. You’ll love it.

My guess here was, at first, LISTY, but it didn’t accept it as valid, which is a shame.

FWIW, I had guessed that word before hitting upon the correct one.

I’m on my city council and last night staff was proposing a change to the way we contribute to retirement. There is a Public Employee DB plan that has a 35 year full benefit and a Public Safety that requires a 25 year full benefit. The Public Safety were going to be required to contribute 4.73% along with what we contributed but we can “pick-up” that contribution. To be ‘fair’ staff proposed that we also contribute that 4.73% to a 401K for the Public Employees.

I tried to explain ‘the fair’ to them. I wasn’t all that successful though I did get it reduced from 4.73 to 3.29 a longer story, but I was shocked that my fellow council members agreed to do that. We will save about 25K out of a 17M budget.

I was at an Asian/halal store that had big cans of Milo on sale.

Very popular in Australia when I was a kid. Here’s a learn-to-spell ad from 1980 when Swedish hairstyles were in fashion (Abba was very popular in Australia too).
