FTA: "The spill cost taxpayers $100,000, when Broward County commissioners voted last week to settle Wilson's lawsuit. Her medical bills exceeded $220,000, the county said."

Anyone else think there's something fishy about her/her lawyers being willing to agree to a settlement that left her $120K in the hole?

KStDrew: oldgunny: Anyone have a recipe?

I have a British recipe. Hope it helps:
2 lbs horse meat2 tablespoons chili sauce2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce2 teaspoons prepared mustard2 tablespoons finely chopped onionIn a large bowl, combine the ingredients and mix well. Shape into patties. Grill, covered, over medium heat for 6 minutes on each side or until a meat thermometer reads 160° and juices run clear.


That's a recipe for burgers. Some pretty bland burgers.

Well, the bus driver is still a careless jerk, but I'm not as outraged by this as I was when I thought "eating a Jamaican beef patty" was a euphemism.

and dollars to doughnuts, the company paid him a pretty penny to resign as he was probably STILL under whatever threshold firing would have taken.

Reid's "work record is disappointing,'' but he never reached the firing threshhold under the union contract.....
Reid's files at the county track the six-year career of the 60-year-old, a former truck driver who'd had "some high school'' in Jamaica, he wrote on his application.


So he's a Niagara in the union and is basically bullet proof and teflon coated and even after doing $223,000 worth of injuries and a number of separate accidents he doesn't get fired. In the end the motherfarker resigned.

No.

The County said "We'll give you $100K now, or you can take it to court. If you go to court, we promise to drag it out as long as humanly possible, make you come to court to answer motions and responses as often as we're legally allowed, ask for as many continuances as we can get away with, and demand at least two independent doctor's evaluations. Oh, and don't forget your lawyer is working on a contingency fee, so he's going to get one-third of whatever you recover and the longer this takes the more he gets."

Florida has a cap on pain and suffering, IIRC, so she gets her medical bills and attorney fees, and that's it. Since there's nothing else she can get, she probably decided to take what she can get now, instead of maybe getting a little more in three or four years.
