What if--just for discussion purposes--the business was serving 100 people per day, and a bike path would serve 500?

Bummer. If I lost hours due to lifts being down, and the mountain told me to pound sand, I'd dispute the charge with the credit card company. Takes just a few minutes online or on the phone. The...

I agree that Major is not a troll and is generally a good guy. But a large number of his posts had disinformation or views on COVID-19 that were not good for public health. I hope he's more careful...

True, but not really. If you have $100K or so in the stock market via your 401K, you might pick up $7-8K/year on average. That's nice, but hardly earth-shaking.

I agree that the fault is largely with the colleges. An irony for you in return--as the financial support has grown, college has become less affordable in total.
