It will be my privilege to be in Atlanta tomorrow, attending another presentation on unfunded liabilities. The guest speaker will be actuary John Boyle, and a preliminary draft of the speech was very impressive. Fiscally-conservative think tanks have been aware of the problem for ages, but this event is intended to educate-and-outreach policy makers who might not have learned about negative numbers in grade school. Hopefully, enough influence will coalesce to generate competition against at least one humongous victim-creating, government-bloating lobby (whose four-letter name begins with an A).

If you wouldn't say it to a co-worker in front of your boss, it probably is not civil and respectful. We will delete any comment that fails this test and issue a warning to the poster. A second offense will result in a ban on commenting on this site. In sum, disagreements, arguments even, are welcome; abusive behavior is not. Thanks.
