I commend Professor Berk and the dozens of other academicians who stood up to corporate welfare on behalf of working people. Said Anat R. Admati: "This bill is sad commentary on the financialization of our economy." Wow. What a way to put it. At the time, I contacted some dozen small businesses about a major news outlet offering free listings to those selling gift cards. I'll take the word of Jonathan Parker (MIT): Major corporations have the resource of bankruptcy to stay afloat.

I'm a certified poll watcher for the 2020 General Election here in Dauphin County. In December, I requested some of the write-in results from the Election Office. There are three known discrepancies I request that the Office correct. They are as follows:
Howie Hawkins, a Green Party candidate, is listed as "Howard" Hawkins in "Howard Hawkins/Angela Walker." If necessary, I'll provide you a copy of my own ballot for comparison.
Howie Hawkins is again listed as "Howard" Hawkins. As an affiliate of the county Green Party, I have yet to confirm any voters in the area who wrote him in as Howard.
