The OT's opinions on tipping - for and against - is well-discussed but here is something new that came up today.
For a small business where tipping is generally accepted (i.e. Haircut place, restaurant) do you differentiate between tipping employees and tipping the business owner? I generally t...

Not sure where I stand on this one. What says you OT?

I love that they deny it is cancelled. Just "rescheduled for various reasons". As if EWE and the folks around him are the definition of credible.

I realize we beat the Edward Gay double murder trial results to death but they sentenced the cooperating witness today.
Remember that the two guys he said were there got off and walked out of court. Meanwhile, his admission that he was at the scene gets him a conviction.

I am going to drop this here for the interested. Mainly because I don't identify with the Poli Board folks and am not interested in having a big political debate.
This is a 60 second on-line "test" that supposedly gives you a reading on your political leanings. Very curious where the OT falls.
