Things that make BosGuy go hmm…

DeliveryApparently our UPS delivery guy cannot read. He has posted three notices to different residents that he “tried” to deliver their packages. He failed to read the message that asks all parcel carriers to bring all such packages to the management office.

If this was a Tweet I’d hashtag it #DumbAss.

Patrick’s new economic bill: NonCompetes, H-1BVisa and Liquor Licenses

Deval PatrickGovernor Deval Patrick is shaking things up with the economic bill he shared last week that aims to make doing business in Massachusetts easier.

The big headlines include his desire to eliminate noncompetes and creating a “global Entrepreneur in Residence” program to allow foreign students to work at Massachusetts start ups as a way to work around the restrictions associated with H-1B visa program.

However, I was more excited to read that Deval Patrick’s plan also give cities and towns greater control over the number liquor licenses in their communities by ending existing statutory limits.  This is long overdue and I hope it is successful. Now we just need the MA Sate legislature to pass these initiatives so Patrick may sign them into law.

Prominent Republican writes: Women need to be paid less so they can find husbands

equal payWhat a sad commentary on the direction the Republican Party is heading. When I first read this headline I thought I was reading The Onion, a satirical online website, but sadly this is all too true.

Yesterday, in an op-ed published by the Christian Post, Phyllis Schlafly — the founder of the Eagle Forum — suggested that increasing the pay gap will help women find suitable husbands when she wrote, “The best way to improve economic prospects for women is to improve job prospects for the men in their lives, even if that means increasing the so-called pay gap.” You can read more here.

This sort of thing really makes me mad.  Feminism isn’t an ugly word. I’ve included the deliciously handsome PA State Rep, Brian Sims, who like me considers himself a feminist and supports equal pay. I’m sure I speak for Brian too when I say I’d like to tell Ms. Schlafly to close her mouth and go away, but I doubt she’d listen to me (or Brian) so I’ll just use my corner of the internet to point out that equal pay for equal work shouldn’t be an issue and the fact it is really irritates me.

SATA will offer weekly direct flights from Boston (on Wednesdays) to Terceira Island.
