LATER, ALLIGATOR

Later, alligator. That’s the message Acting Administrative Director Carrie Nevans delivered to future injured workers in her talk to a Sacramento workers’ compensation conference yesterday. Earlier this year the DWC had floated a proposal for a revision of the 2005 Permanent Disability Rating Schedule.

AIG CANCELS THE RITZ

If you’ve never visited the Ritz-Carlton at Half Moon Bay on the San Mateo coast, you’ve missed a beautiful spot. Perched on a serene bluff over the Pacific, the resort reeks of privilege, pampering, and calm. Got to give them credit where it’s due. Those AIG executives have good taste in resorts.

MASSAGES AFTER THE HAPPY ENDING

When the going gets tough, the tough get themselves to the spa. A couple of weeks seems like an eternity.

That near-death experience didn’t seem to deter the “let the good times roll” approach of a […]
